Griffith Responds to State of the Union Address
Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) issued the following statement regarding President Trump’s State of the Union address:
“President Trump gave an encouraging State of the Union address this evening. While there are challenges we face, they can be overcome by joining together to work on solutions.
“He laid out several priorities to improve the safety and prosperity of the American people in general and the people of the Ninth District. In particular, I was glad to hear his focus on lowering the cost of prescription drugs, an effort I have worked on in the House. I was also very encouraged that he is not giving up on efforts to secure our southern border.
“I look forward to continued work with the Administration and my colleagues in Congress on policies that will benefit all Americans.”
STATEMENT OF U.S. SEN. MARK R. WARNER

Mr. Warner once again bows to his national party lines – not to common sense and not to what is good for the entire state of Virginia as well as our country. Warner could have written his response five days before the President gave his speech – it would have read the same – word for word – just as his party would dictate. Warner clearly represents the liberal core of the Democratic party – not the general populace of Virginia or the United States.
