Bennet Statement on Inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris

Washington, D.C. – Today, Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet released the following statement after Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were sworn into office as President and Vice President of the United States outside the U.S. Capitol:

“Not since FDR has an administration began with such formidable challenges – a public health crisis, an economic crisis, a climate crisis, and the most bitter partisan divisions in living memory. Americans are eager for change. President Biden and Vice President Harris have a historic opportunity to earn the American people’s confidence by leading with integrity, governing with competence, and pursuing an agenda that will make a real difference in their lives. The new administration has already put forward proposals to bridge us from the pandemic into a growing economy while expanding opportunity and security for millions of Americans. I look forward to working closely with the new administration to pass this agenda, restore a government that works, and burnish our democratic example to the world once again.”
