WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Kevin Cramer (R-ND) issued the following statement after President Joe Biden’s inauguration ceremony today:

“I want to congratulate Joe Biden on being sworn in as our nation’s 46th President, and Kamala Harris as his Vice President. While I did not vote for him or support his campaign, I appreciate President Biden’s desire to be a President for all Americans, and I look forward to working with him on issues where we agree and to having spirited debates on policies where we differ.

“I also want to thank President Trump, Vice President Pence, and the members of their administration for their four years of service to our country. Through their unprecedented partnership and attentiveness to the needs of our state, we were able to accomplish a great deal for North Dakota and get our constituents a seat at the table like never before. And we are better off because of it.”
