Congressman Earl L. "Buddy" Carter (R-Ga.) was sworn into the 116th United States Congress today to serve his third term as the United States Representative for Georgia's First Congressional District.

"Serving the First District of Georgia has been one of the greatest honors of my life and I am excited to continue this great responsibility in the 116th Congress," Carter said. "While I am proud of the accomplishments and victories delivered over the last two years, there is still a lot of work to do. First, we must start with ending this unacceptable partial government shutdown. Now that Representative Pelosi has been selected to serve as Speaker of the House by her conference, I hope she and her fellow Democrats will finally come to the table and get to work. We must end this shutdown and also provide critical disaster assistance and funding to secure our border. 

"While leadership in the House has changed, my commitment to serving the First District of Georgia has not changed. I will work every day with members on both sides of the aisle to push forward our common goals while maintaining my strong conservative principles. Important issues like lowering prescription drug prices and ending the opioid crisis are not partisan. We must come together in Congress and as a nation to deliver results."

During the ceremony, Carter joined his colleagues to take the oath of office on the House Floor.
