Congressman Greg Walden says he's thrilled to be able to serve the people of Oregon for another term, but he's less enthusiastic about the direction of the nation- after last night's reelection of President Obama.
"Well, from what we know now as Americans voted for slick government. It looks like President Obama will serve a second term and Majority Leader Harry Reid will continue on to lead a Democratic Senate and Republicans will mostly likely continue to be a majority in the House. Slick government obviously leads to check and balances, and challenges. But we have to rise above the petty partisanship and get the job done in Washington for the American people - get the economy going again."
Walden says he's now pursuing the Chairmanship of the Republican National Congressional Committee. That decision will be made next week.
