Crapo Congratulates Senior Senator Craig

Craig sworn into U.S. Senate for third term today

Washington, DC â?? Idaho Senator Mike Crapo offered his congratulations to Idaho senior Senator Larry Craig upon his swearing-in to fill a third term in the U.S. Senate. Crapo escorted Craig to the ceremony, which was held in the Senate Chambers in the U.S. Capitol this afternoon.â??Senator Craig has been a phenomenal leader for the state of Idaho,â?? Crapo said. â??During his tenure in both the House of Representatives and the Senate, he has made Idaho his priority and worked hard to represent the interests of Idahoans in the Congress. He has become a national leader in natural resources, energy, judiciary, and senior issues, and his stature as a leader has been enhanced by his service as a member of the Republican leadership team. I am pleased to serve with him in the U.S. Senate and I look forward his next six years in office. He will continue to serve our state and its people well.â??# # #
