Franks Sworn in for Sixth Term in Congress

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Following the swearing in for his sixth term in Congress, Congressman Trent Franks released the following statement:

"It is an inexpressibly high honor to be trusted with the responsibility inherent in a position designed by our founders to be the Congressional role closest to and the most representative of the American people. As I begin my sixth term, I daily pray for the wisdom to dutifully and adequately represent the Arizona citizens amongst whom I have made my home for nearly four decades, and I'm grateful to those same Arizonans for their trust.

 "As a country, we face a time of decision that will affect the ultimate destiny of this great experiment of freedom. Most Americans are discouraged by the path our federal government seems poised to take. But I stand committed to continuing to fight for the return to the bedrock Constitutional principles that spurred me to involvement in public service. And God-willing, we'll get it done."
