Press Release

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


“We hope President Trump’s calls for bipartisanship are indeed genuine, and he takes concrete action to unite the country. In the era of divided government, bipartisanship is the only way we’ll be able to get anything done. The alternative is endless political gridlock, which hurts our economy and embarrasses our country on the world stage. 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, bring down our nation’s ever-growing debt, and ensure Americans never see another government shutdown again. Our constituents are counting on us to break the gridlock and get things done, and the Blue Dogs will lead the way.”
