China’s absurd claim COVID started w/ shipment of Maine lobster attempts to distract from most likely cause: accidental leak from its Wuhan coronavirus lab.

The CDC and the FDA have not provided sufficient data to the American people on breakthrough cases. @SenatorBurr  and I are urging them to better track this critical information and make it publicly available immediately.

I am deeply saddened by the passing of Colin Powell, a wonderful person and an extraordinary public servant.

He dedicated his life to his country, serving decades in the military, rising to the highest leadership position of Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, & later becoming our nation’s top diplomat as Secretary of State.

Colin was a compassionate leader who broke barriers and made a real difference for our country. I hope his wife Alma and the Powell family will find comfort in knowing how many Americans have been inspired by his life of selfless service.

This decision is a welcome reprieve. I brought this ruling to the attention of the Secretary of Commerce in the hope that the Department will reverse course.

I joined a bipartisan group of Senators in issuing the following statement on the upcoming Congressional certification of the 2020 Presidential election results:

We are in the midst of a crisis in our country caused by the coronavirus. When it comes to Americans’ health and saving Americans’ jobs and our small businesses, we don't have another day. We don't have another hour. We don't have another minute to delay acting.
