Concord - New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement applauding President Barack Obama's State of the Union address this evening.
"President Obama delivered a powerful State of the Union address tonight, laying out an agenda that will continue to build upon the national economic recovery. When the President took office just two years ago, it was during the most difficult time any of us have ever experienced. Since then, we have seen 12 consecutive months of private sector job growth, the end of combat operations in Iraq, and the promise of equality extended to women and Americans serving in the armed forces.
"But tonight's speech was about moving forward, and the President laid out the important priorities for the future - to grow our economy, create jobs and opportunity, and out-educate, out-innovate, and out-build our competitors. That is how we will enable more American families to achieve the American Dream and cement a new foundation for American prosperity."
