Davis and LaHood Statements on Inauguration of President Biden and Vice President Harris
U.S. Representative Rodney Davis (R-Ill.) issued the following statement on the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris:
“Joe Biden is now our Nation’s president and Kamala Harris is our vice president. I wish them success, for when they succeed, our Nation succeeds. My family and I will be praying for them. It was an honor to be able to witness the peaceful transition of power for the second time of my tenure in Congress.
“I stand ready to work with President Biden and Vice President Harris to find bipartisan agreement on solutions to the critical issues facing American families. At the same time, I won’t hesitate to oppose President Biden, his Administration, and the Democratic-controlled Congress and hold them accountable for their party’s liberal impulses. Our Nation faces many problems. Now is the time for all of us to come together and govern in a bipartisan way. That is how we will begin to heal our divisions and move our country forward.”
Congressman Darin LaHood (IL-18) released the following statement on the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris:
"I congratulate President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris on their inauguration. The 59th presidential inauguration marks an important tradition of the peaceful transfer of power that has made us uniquely American for over 200 years, and I am proud to participate in the events today.
"Our nation faces many unprecedented challenges in the months ahead as we continue to battle the COVID-19 pandemic and work to rebuild our communities in the wake of this virus. In Congress, I will work hard to try to find common ground with the Biden Administration on areas that will benefit the constituents of the 18th Congressional District of Illinois.
"No matter the political party of the president, America will remain the greatest country on earth. I wish President Biden, Vice President Harris, and their families good health and wisdom as they begin their term."
