Walsh Casts First Major Vote To Raise Debt Ceiling

Posted: Updated:

Newly-appointed senator John Walsh cast his first major vote on Wednesday.

Walsh voted in favor of raising the debt ceiling, preventing the government from defaulting.

He said in a statement that he is eager to lead the charge to cut the spending problem in Congress.

"Congress has a terrible debt and spending problem that it must address now, and I am eager to lead the charge," said Walsh in his statement. "We do that by cutting waste and creating jobs--not by playing games and tanking the economy. Montana's businesses deserve the certainty that this vote provides. I will always protect the full faith and credit of the United States."

The bill now goes to the President for him to sign.
