After Winning Election, Byrne heads to Washington D.C.

MOBILE, Alabama -

Bradley Byrne isn't wasting any time. A day after getting elected, the incoming congressman is already in Washington D.C.

Byrne boarded a plane Wednesday morning. He says he is done celebrating and is approaching this trip like a business trip. He will only have a couple of weeks to get everything in order.

Byrne is used to working in state government, but says he is ready for his new job in the Capitol.

“We've got a lot of help so that is good, plus we have done a lot of homework about the legislation and how to do this the logistical things are just details that you have to spend the time to go through. We didn't want to let any time waste,” said Byrne.

Byrne has about three weeks to get moved in and set up. He expects to be sworn in on either January 7th or 8th.

Late Wednesday afternoon Byrne announced that Congressional offices had been reopened including the Mobile location.

“It is critically important for the people of South Alabama to have the services provided by a Congressional office available to them over the Christmas holidays. Today, we have taken the first step in the process of getting this office back to full functionality. I promised the people of South Alabama that I would work tirelessly on their behalf, and now we are putting in place the framework to fulfill that promise,” said Byrne.
