U.S. Senator proudly representing the state of Michigan.
I spoke with @michpca about how the troubling surge in #COVID19 cases in Michigan is impacting community health centers and staff. As @SenateHSGACDems Chairman, I’ll keep working to ensure we're effectively distributing vaccines, especially to underserved areas.

As former Lt. Commander in the US Navy Reserve I can say we have not had—nor should we ever have—our ships built in China. Proud to say ship production is done with Michigan skilled workers. I’m working to keep it that way. WATCH:
