It looks like Roland Burris will take President-elect Barack Obama's Senate seat later this week.

Senate Democratic leaders say they expect to swear in the former Illinois attorney general in the coming days, barring objections from Republicans.

Senators Harry Reid and Dick Durbin made that statement after Burris' lawyer met with Senate officials, who said his formal paperwork was in order.
