 U.S. Senator Ben Cardin today announced that Maryland Governor Wes Moore (both D-Md.) will accompany him to next Tuesday’s State of the Union Address by President Joe Biden. Senator Cardin and Governor Moore will attend the Secretary of the Senate’s annual dinner before heading to a joint session of the United States Congress for the address. Senator Cardin extended an invitation to Governor Moore to celebrate renewed prospects for robust federal-state partnerships throughout the state.

“Team Maryland, which again includes the state’s chief executive in Annapolis, is poised to make major advancements in infrastructure, transportation, public health and safety, the Chesapeake Bay, and so much more thanks to the epic achievements we made in the last Congress. From the passage of the American Rescue Plan to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the Inflation Reduction Act and the return of Congressionally Directed Spending projects, Maryland is ready to leverage important investments in our state and local communities,” said Senator Cardin. “It’s an exciting time to be a Marylander, and I’m thrilled that one of the key reasons for that excitement will be joining me on Capitol Hill for the State of the Union.”

"I'm delighted to join Senator Cardin as his guest for President Biden's State of the Union Address, which I know will be historic both in celebrating the Biden-Harris administration's achievements and in sharing their vision for America's future," said Governor Moore. "We are thrilled to know that we have strong support and partners in Washington who will work closely with us to build on bipartisan legislative accomplishments, ensuring that Maryland is a national leader in advancing infrastructure, transportation, education, and health, and to be assured every day that we will move forward in service of Marylanders."
