Cardin on Obama victory
Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin has released the following statement:
“Change is coming. In a clear rejection of the policies and principles that guided the last eight years, the American public has voted and they are ready for new priorities and a new direction for our country. I am proud to have voted for Barack Obama, a dynamic leader who is ready on day one to tackle the very serious problems currently facing our nation.
"It has been a long election, but now it is time to put partisanship behind us and come together as one nation. We must continue our work to stabilize our economy and move us closer to energy security. We must invest in policies that protect Middle-Class America while protecting our environment. We must find a sensible way to provide all Americans with quality, affordable healthcare. And we must restore America’s leadership position across the globe.
"I look forward to working with President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, on behalf of all Americans, to renew, protect and strengthen our great nation.”
