Van Hollen Statement on Biden-Harris Swearing-In

Today, U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) released the following statement on the swearing-in of Joe Biden to serve as the President of the United States and Kamala Harris to serve as Vice President. 

“Today is a new day for our country. Today we witness the historic swearing-in of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to serve as our next President and Vice President of the United States. As we turn this new page, I’m filled with hope for a brighter future. While our nation faces some of the most difficult challenges in our history – from tackling the health and economic impacts of the COVID-19 crisis, to rooting out systemic racism and inequality, to addressing the pressing threats of the climate crisis – I am committed to working with the new Administration and my colleagues in Congress to meet these challenges head-on. Together, we must work to heal our country, stride boldly into the future, and pursue a more perfect, just, and equal union.”
