Press Release

WASHINGTON—Today, Blue Dog Co-Chair for Communications, Rep. Lou Correa (CA-46) issued the following statement ahead of President Trump’s State of the Union address:


“We hope President Trump will use this opportunity to unite the country rather than feed into partisan divisions. In the era of divided government, bipartisanship is the only way we’ll be able to move our country forward. The alternative is endless political gridlock, which only hurts our country. The President, along with Democrats and Republicans in Congress, can and must find common ground to address the issues our country is facing. It will require bipartisan consensus to rebuild our nation’s infrastructure, create good-paying jobs, lower the cost of health care, address climate change, secure our elections and bring down our nation’s ever-growing debt. Our constituents are counting on us to break the gridlock and get things done, and we will be listening for opportunities in tonight’s State of the Union address to do just that.”
