He was an engaging genius and a generous friend. Honey and I will miss him greatly.

There was no one in the United States Senate quite like Johnny Isakson. He stuck to his principles but still was able to forge difficult compromises that helped our country. No one was better liked on both sides of the aisle.

READ my op-ed in the @Tennessean : Electric trucks or flying cars: Tennessee auto industry is well positioned 

No one knows who will be driving what 40 years from now. But Tennessee’s cluster of auto manufacturers and suppliers is well positioned to figure out the future and to continue to raise family incomes. Read my op-ed in the @Tennessean : 

John Rice Irwin displayed Appalachian pioneer history in a way that no one else ever has. His tens of thousands of items in the Museum of Appalachia remind us that we don’t have to go outside our own backyards to find interesting people.

For sixty years he stayed up late into the night writing books and matching artifacts with stories so that we could better understand who we are. He taught us about ancestors who made or grew things instead of buying them.

My statement concerning President@realDonaldTrump ’s intent to fill the U.S. Supreme Court vacancy following the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and @senatemajldr  Mitch McConnell’s announcement that the Senate will vote on that nomination.

Dr. Fauci is one of our country’s most distinguished public servants. He has served 6 presidents, starting with Ronald Reagan. If more Americans paid attention to his advice, we’d have fewer cases of COVID-19, & it would be safer to go back to school & back to work & out to eat.

I worked with other senators to make sure that we have the right to ask for more documents and witnesses, but there is no need for more evidence to prove something that has already been proven and that does not meet the U.S. Constitution’s high bar for an impeachable offense.1/15

The reason this committee is voting on the #USMCA  is because it includes a section covering labor provisions. Among these are provisions to improve workers’ rights by granting the U.S. new enforcement authorities and holding Mexico accountable for improving workers’ rights.

This agreement has overwhelming bipartisan support. #USMCA  will continue to raise family incomes and create even more good-paying jobs.

Our founding documents provide for duly elected presidents who serve with “the consent of the governed,” not at the pleasure of the United States Congress. Let the people decide. 15/15
