Kansas Senator Roger Marshall and his wife Laina attended the inauguration for President Joe Biden in Washington on Wednesday. Marshall issued the following statement:
“It is important that both sides of the political spectrum continue to lower the national temperature and recognize opportunities for common good. I have hope that we can work with the new Administration on behalf of Kansas as we tackle extremely pressing issues facing our nation including: getting the COVID-19 vaccine into the arms of everyone who wants and needs it, boosting job recovery, and opening businesses and our economy back up to the historic levels we saw before the pandemic.”
Marshall issued a statement earlier saying he would not support an impeachment trial for former President Donald Trump. He argued that a trial would further divide the nation.
Kansas Senator Jerry Moran also attended the inauguration and said the event was “an important moment in our nation’s democracy.’ He also said in a statement on Twitter:
The Inauguration represents the orderly and peaceful transfer of power that is an enduring symbol of a government of the people, by the people and for the people. I look forward to working with my Senate colleagues in this new year to create a better future for all Kansans.
Kansas 4th District Congressman Ron Estes was also present for the inauguration and issued a statement on Twitter:
It is an honor to witness our nation’s tradition of a peaceful transfer of power today. I look forward to getting back to work advocating for Kansans – reopening the economy and pushing against radical policies that will hurt families and small businesses.
