“Today America once again sent a strong message to the world: transferring power to a new presidential administration, a sacred tradition of our democracy.

“As an eternal optimist, I am hopeful we can work together with President Joe Biden, and the first female Vice President, Kamala Harris, in a bipartisan way to deliver for the American people. No matter who is serving in the White House, as Iowa’s junior senator, I will remain focused on fighting for and defending the way of life for Iowa families, farmers, businesses and communities.

“From the Renewable Fuel Standard to economic policy, and from agriculture to national defense, I will hold this administration accountable and always put Iowa’s interests first.

“May God bless our great United States of America.”
