Senator King Statement on President Biden’s State of the Union

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senator Angus King (I-Maine) today released the following statement after President Joe Biden delivered the annual State of the Union address. The speech comes after a historically productive and bipartisan session of Congress and a season of measurable improvements for the American economy:

"Tonight's State of the Union address was a powerful reminder of what America can accomplish when we fight together for common values rather than against one another. Despite historic challenges, Congress and Maine people have united in pursuit of a brighter future. The past two years have seen historic accomplishments - most of them bipartisan - that have stabilized the country as we came out of difficult times. President Harry Truman once said 'it's remarkable what you can accomplish when you don't care who gets the credit.' That's why I appreciate President Biden's continued support for bipartisan efforts to build on the successes of these past two years. While there will be difficulties ahead, time has shown that there is no challenge too great for a united America. I'm confident that the President is right; the future is bright, and the State of the Union is strong."
