Cheyenne, OK – Congressman Frank Lucas (OK-03) today released the following statement on the 59th inaugural ceremony of President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. and Vice President Kamala Harris:

“Putting politics and ideology aside, today is a historic day for the United States of America as we honor our country’s most important civic ritual: the inauguration of the President of the United States. As President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris take office, I join millions of Americans in praying for our Nation’s continued success,” said Congressman Lucas“This year, the traditions of the inaugural ceremony were a bit different- including my own tradition. As I assessed security requirements and adhered to the necessary standards for COVID-19 and the general policy of minimizing public involvement in this year’s inauguration, I, like many Americans, watched the inauguration of President Biden from home. 

“In the coming days as President Biden implements his agenda, I look forward to continuing my work to better the lives of my fellow Oklahomans and ensuring that conservative solutions are brought to the table to help eradicate COVID-19 from our communities; provide targeted economic relief for the American people and businesses; and ensure businesses and industries are not crushed by burdensome government regulation.”
