Maryland leaders react to Biden State of the Union Address

February 8th, 2023 by WCBC Radio

WBAL reports that Maryland lawmakers are reacting to President Joe Biden's state of the union address on Tuesday night. Sen. Chris Van Hollen said the president laid out the groundwork for the progress they've made.

"He shared how we’ll continue to build on that progress to grow more prosperity and more opportunity for all," Hollen said in a statement. "I am committed to working alongside him to continue to strengthen our democracy, protect the rights of Americans, create an economy that works for everyone, and build a more perfect union.”

Sen. Ben Cardin, with guest Gov. Wes Moore, was also in attendance at what was his 36th State of the Union address.

"It was historic both in celebrating the Biden-Harris administration's achievements and in sharing their vision for America's future," Moore said. "Marylanders should be confident in our strong support and partners in Washington—including President Biden, Vice President Harris, and our Congressional delegation—who will work closely with us to build on bipartisan legislative accomplishments and do everything we can to help Maryland’s working families.

Congressman Andy Harris said Biden was inconsistent and blamed a lot of things on former President Donald Trump.

Harris told WBAL  that he didn't attend because he "had the feeling this would be a campaign speech."
