Washington, D.C., January 23, 2023 – United States Senator Pete Ricketts (R-Neb.) was sworn into office Monday on the floor of the Senate and officially seated as a member of the 118th U.S. Congress. Members of Sen. Ricketts’ family, including his wife, Susanne Shore, and friends watched the swearing-in from the Senate gallery.
“There is no higher honor than serving the people of Nebraska, and representing my fellow Nebraskans in the Senate is an incredible privilege,” said Sen. Ricketts. “In state government, we’ve shown what a great impact conservative leadership can have, and I’m going to bring the same approach to Washington. I look forward to working with Sen. Fischer and the other members of our congressional delegation in the fight to reduce taxes, defend our freedoms, expand trade partnerships for our ag producers, stand up to the Chinese Communist Party, strengthen our national defense, and make government work better.”
