“It’s an honor to be sworn in today to represent the great state of Colorado in the United States Senate. I’m grateful for the trust and faith Coloradans have placed in me, and looking forward to bringing your voices to Washington to tackle our country’s most pressing issues. The challenges ahead are grave, but with hard work, common sense, and collaboration we can move forward together and emerge from this pandemic more resilient. We’re excited to get to work and deliver for Coloradans in every corner of the state.”
