(Washington, D.C.) – U.S. Senator Dean Heller (R-NV) issued the following statement recognizing the 57th Presidential Inauguration on January 21, 2013, the same day that the nation observes Martin Luther King Day.
“Today I join Americans across the country by gathering to witness the Inauguration ceremonies of the President and Vice President of the United States. On this day, we celebrate the strength of our democracy and recognize that Americans across the political spectrum stand united behind the ideals outlined in our Constitution.
“As President Obama puts forward his vision for the next four years, we also pay tribute to the vision and life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Not only do we recognize Dr. King for his service, but we also remember him as both an inspirational leader and advocate of tolerance, peace, and equality. His vision for America stands as an example for us all and I join with everyone across this great nation in honoring his legacy,” said Senator Dean Heller.
