As the longest-serving state senate leader in Maryland and US history, my friend Mike Miller had an amazing ability to get things done. He was also fiercely loyal. If he had your back, you never had to look over your shoulder. My thoughts are with Patti and the entire family.

John Chaney was a brilliant man and a great coach. He got the most out of his players because he believed in them as students, athletes, and individuals, and they knew he would always have their backs. RIP to a true legend.

Grateful to the Biden Administration for providing long overdue support for the people of Puerto Rico to rebuild from the 2017 hurricanes and prepare for future storms.

I am grateful to President Duque and the people of Colombia. This decision will save lives & create a stronger future for the entire region. We must all keep working to resolve this humanitarian crisis — supporting our neighbors and host communities alike.

Vernon Jordan was a wonderful friend to Hillary, Chelsea, and me, in good times and bad. We worked and played, laughed and cried, won and lost together. We loved him very much and always will.

My conversation with Steven Garza about his experiences at Boys State and the importance of young people getting involved in politics left me feeling good about America’s future. Have a listen to the latest episode of “Why Am I Telling You This?”

America has always been at its best when we are looking out for one another and pulling together in common cause. Now, with the development of safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines, we have the chance to rise to the moment again.

Walter Mondale believed in the power of government to make a positive difference in people’s lives, and proved it at every stage of his remarkable career—with deep policy knowledge, a tireless work ethic, and uncommon decency. Hillary and I loved him and will miss him very much.

The jury made the right decision in convicting Derek Chauvin for murdering George Floyd. My full statement:

Today we faced an unprecedented assault on our Capitol, our Constitution, and our country.   The assault was fueled by more than four years of poison politics spreading deliberate misinformation, sowing distrust in our system, and pitting Americans against one another.

America has spoken and democracy has won. Now we have a President-Elect and Vice President-Elect who will serve all of us and bring us all together. Congratulations to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on your momentous victory!

This is a terrific choice! @KamalaHarris  will be a great partner and she and @JoeBiden  make a strong team.

John Lewis gave all he had to redeem America’s unmet promise of equality and justice for all, and to create a place for us to build a more perfect union together. In so doing he became the conscience of the nation.

No one deserves to die the way George Floyd did. And the truth is, if you’re white in America, the chances are you won’t. That truth is what underlies the pain and the anger that so many are feeling and expressing. My full statement on his death:
