I’m so happy for Coach Boyle and Ngoty now that this long, frustrating saga is finally over. It's a shame our immigration system is so broken that it took the office of a United States Senator just for a mom to bring her daughter home.

I'm here at @GeorgeMasonU  for a town hall focusing on student debt and college affordability. Watch live:

Any short-term spending bill should make sure that we’re keeping our end of the bargain and protecting America’s coal miners – including the 1,200 retired miners who will lose their hard-earned health care benefits at the end of 2019.

This is just cruel. These loyal dogs provide an invaluable service – the least we can do is make sure that they’re treated with kindness and compassion. I've demanded that the State Department explain how it plans to protect the health & safety of these animals from here on out.

Today, @CMSGov  announced that Virginia will be receiving $4,992,142 in funds to help increase treatment & recovery services to those struggling with substance use disorders. Very proud to have worked with @timkaine  to write key portions of the bill that helped this happen.

Iranian violence cannot be rewarded and the U.S. must respond to attacks on our interests, but this Administration’s inconsistent and erratic policies are not making us safer. It is increasingly apparent that on Iran, the President has little credibility, few allies, and no plan.

The U.S. must work with our European allies and regional partners to decrease the risk of violence from terrorism and Iranian proxies while ensuring that we do not launch ourselves into a disastrous Middle East war.

Doubling down on a failing strategy will get us nowhere.


This is serious. The President of the United States should not be using his platform to influence potential witnesses in a federal investigation involving his campaign.

Election security is national security.

Every member of Congress, Republican and Democrat, needs to speak up in defense of the Special Counsel. Now.

I can’t believe I have to say this, but election security really should not be a partisan issue.

For the record, the President’s Chief of Staff and his attorney in an ongoing criminal investigation into the President’s campaign have no business showing up to a classified intelligence briefing.

I would have liked to meet with Judge Kavanaugh personally before deciding how I'd vote. Even attempted to set up a meeting with him, though unfortunately the White House never responded. So I’m just going to say it. I’ll be voting no on Judge Kavanaugh. Here’s why:

One year after our nation’s intelligence agencies unanimously concluded that Russia attacked our democracy, House Republicans are going after the FBI and Department of Justice instead.
