Rep. Harry Teague (D, NM-02) sent this statement from Washington about today's presidential inauguration:

“Today I witnessed the historic swearing in of President Barack Obama,” said Congressman Harry Teague. “It was an exciting event and the over one million attendees represented people from every cross section of America. As President Obama said in his speech, the challenges we face as Americans are great. It is an honor to represent the hardworking people of Southern New Mexico during this historic time in our nation’s history. I am excited to work with my colleagues in Congress and President Obama to solve our economic crisis and put America back to work.”
