“I applaud the President’s call for compromise and cooperation tonight. It is time to leave partisan corners and work together on behalf of the American people to move our country forward. I stand ready to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to fix our broken immigration system, fund border security, invest in our nation’s crumbling infrastructure to reduce traffic in Colorado, and bolster our national security.

“I was pleased the President also highlighted the recent economic growth our economy has experienced following passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, but there is more we can do. While communities along the Front Range have experienced economic growth over the past few years, many rural communities still feel left behind. We need to further our commitment to economic development across all four corners of our great state.

“I’m confident the future of our nation is bright, and I am hopeful we can find common ground to advance the interests of all Americans.”
