BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Idaho’s Republican lawmakers say they are excited to get to work after the inauguration of President Donald Trump.

U.S. Sen. Mike Crapo released a prepared statement Friday congratulating Trump on becoming the 45th president. The Idaho Republican added that he was looking forward to setting a sound course for the country.

Meanwhile, GOP U.S. Rep. Raul Labrador released a brief six-word statement after Trump’s speech, saying it was time to get to work.
