U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., issued the following statement following Tuesday’s elections.
“Our electoral process has served America for more than 200 years. While the result of this election may not have been what many of us wanted, millions of Americans went to the polls and the people have spoken. This is a time that requires great cooperation and bipartisanship. Failure to act on our national debt, the fiscal cliff, rising health care costs, and a whole slate of other issues, will leave future generations with less opportunity and prosperity than our ancestors left us.
“I salute every candidate whether they won or lost because they cared enough about their community to put themselves and their beliefs on the line. Intense public scrutiny is not an easy thing to bear. My congratulations to Senator Barrasso and Representative Lummis on their re-election. They earned it. Wyoming has a strong team and we will continue to advocate for less government and more sustainable spending along with responsible domestic energy production.
“The nation needs leadership to bring our country and our Congress together to address the critical issues we are facing. We need to learn and remember the lessons and experiences of the past, but our focus should be on what is ahead for our country. America is the greatest country in the world and I represent the greatest state in the country and I’m thankful. The election didn’t change that.”
