Washington D.C. (WTVY) - U.S. Representative Barry Moore was sworn in to the United States House of Representatives Sunday.

Moore was elected to serve as representative of Alabama 2nd Congressional District during November’s general election after beating his Democratic rival Phyllis Harvey-Hall.

He released the following statement Sunday afternoon:

“Today, I once again took an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution and serve the great people of Alabama’s Second Congressional District,” said Moore. “As a veteran and small business owner, I am humbled by the opportunity to serve my state and represent the voices of my constituents in the People’s House. It’s an honor to be part of the most inclusive Republican class in Congressional history and to serve in this particularly difficult time. The voters in my district have had enough of politics as usual in Washington and they want a representative who will fight to preserve our Republic and our way of life. Whether it’s reining in Washington’s runaway spending, fighting for election integrity, securing our borders, or protecting the unborn, our country’s problems can be solved through prayer and hard work. I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and get to work.”

Moore takes the seat previously held by Rep. Martha Roby, who chose not to seek reelection.
