Senator Todd Young was among those in attendance at the unusual 59th Inaugural on Wednesday.
“The peaceful transfer of power is an essential component of the American experiment. Witnessing this uniquely American tradition once again reminded me of the immense responsibilities we have to protect this republic. I stand ready to work with the new administration to find common ground wherever possible, and to ensure every American has a fair shot at success,” said Senator Young.
His guest for the event was Brigadier General R. Dale Lyles, the Adjutant General of the Indiana National Guard. Young thanked the Indiana National Guard members who were mobilized to help ensure a safe event, along with General Lyles, and said the men and women of the National Guard continue to make Indiana proud.
