TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley had some company in his Statehouse office as he watched history being made.

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.
