SIOUX FALLS, S.D.—U.S. Senator John Thune (R-South Dakota), chairman of the Senate Republican Conference and ranking member of the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee, tonight made the following comment on Republicans regaining the Senate majority:
“President Obama said his policies were on the ballot this election and Americans tonight rejected those policies. The Senate Republican majority is ready to get to work for the American people. Republicans stand ready to pass solutions to help create jobs, grow the economy, and strengthen the middle class.
“We invite Senate Democrats and the President to join us in these efforts to address the crucial issues facing our country.”
