About 10 middle school students from the Democrat's Topeka district joined him in watching Barack Obama become the 44th president Tuesday.
Hensley said it was a moment he never thought he would see in his lifetime. He was one of the earlier supporters of Obama and served as his state campaign co-chairman.
He said some of the students were worried they would miss a scheduled tour of the Statehouse dome by watching the swearing in, but Hensley said he arranged for them to make the tour in the early afternoon.
