Burr says leadership key to bipartisanship

READ MORE: Burr says leadership key to bipartisanship

During our news at 5 p.m, Sen. Richard Burr stopped by for an interview with WWAY's Steve Rondinaro. We asked the senator what he thought about the President's call in his State of the Union speech Wednesday about bipartisan cooperation in Washington.

"I think the President can speak to the speaker and the majority leader in the Senate, encourage them to go back to the table and seek out new ideas, get input from Republicans on the agenda," Burr said. "But at the end of the day, I think if the President leaves it up to speaker Pelosi and leader Reid, we're going to continue to see months and months of continuation of an impasse that is more driven based upon parties and ideology than agreements for the American people."
