Pate Sworn In, Pays For Ice Cream

The NC Senate candidate whose line, "I paid for this ice cream," became a memorable TV commercial, thanked supporters during his swearing in ceremony by buying them the cool treat.

Republican Louis Pate was sworn in Friday as the NC District 5 Senator after beating out incumbent Democrat Don Davis.

The courtroom at the Greene County courthouse was full for the ceremony. Pate mentioned that his competitor called him after they learned the final results. Pate called Davis a "class act."

Towards the end of the ceremony Pate invited everyone to a reception where his grandchildren served ice cream--and of course Pate paid for that ice cream!
