In a video posted on YouTube, GOP Sen. John Hoeven and Democrat Heidi Heitkamp recited Abraham Lincoln's historic address for the Learn the Address project, an initiative started by filmmaker Ken Burns.

Hoeven says free trade deals will rev up economy

(CNN) - North Dakota Sen. John Hoeven said Saturday that free trade agreements can spur major economic growth in America, and called on President Obama to send a number of the treaties to the Senate for ratification.

“For the good of our economy – and our country – he needs to send these free trade agreements to the United States Senate for approval now, so that U.S. workers and businesses can begin to realize their benefits,” Hoeven said in the weekly Republican address.
