Dianne and I appreciate so many kind comments as my U.S. Senate career comes to a close along with 2019. We wish all Georgians and all Americans a happy New Year! While I will miss serving in the Senate, I am looking forward to a wonderful 2020.

It has been an honor of a lifetime to represent our veterans in the U.S. Senate over the past five years as @VAChair . During this time, we have fundamentally changed the @DeptVetAffairs  to be more responsive to the veterans it serves. More about our work:

I am proud of how far we have come, and I hope the committee will continue this progress to ensure veterans continue to receive the care and benefits they deserve.

Dianne and I wish you and your family a very merry Christmas. As we remember the birth of Christ, may we also remember the sacrifice of our military service members spending this holiday season away from their loved ones.

Praying for my friend, @repjohnlewis  as he begins his fight against cancer. They don’t make them stronger or braver, and I’m confident he will take on this challenge as he has every other he’s faced: with courage and determination fueled by his strong faith.

@SenatorLoeffler  made history today as she took the oath of office in the U.S. Senate. Her committee assignments will put her life and business experience to use as she serves our great state and nation.

Thank you, @GovKemp , for the invitation and kind words at your State of the State address. I pray the @universityofga  Parkinson's professorship will advance research and help find a cure. I’ve always been proud to serve this state, and yes, it is a great time to be a Georgian!

I am so thankful to @BrianKempGA  and @universityofga  for their commitment to researching neurocognitive diseases like Parkinson’s. Actions like this provide hope for a brighter tomorrow and bring us closer to finding a cure.

As a cosponsor of S.1838, the "Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act of 2019"—which was recently signed into law—I am proud to support the people of #HongKong  in their #FightForFreedom  and #democracy .

Congrats to @SenatorSessions  on becoming U.S. Attorney General. His respect for law, 15 years' @TheJusticeDept  experience are great assets.

Enjoyed talking with as about how we’re leading the way in bipartisanship in the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee to ensure our veterans receive the best care. and I also discus #CaptainAmericaed  why trade relationships with our neighbors is vital.

After much prayer and consultation with my family and doctors, I have made the very tough decision to leave the U.S. Senate at the end of 2019. It has been the honor of a lifetime serving the state of Georgia. This decision pains me greatly but I know it is the right thing to do.

Today took additional steps to help ensure a successful transition to civilian life for our veterans by helping improve coordination of mental health care between , & : .

Thank you to for voting present at today’s committee vote on the secretary of state nomination to accommodate my absence after delivering the eulogy at the funeral of a close friend in Atlanta. You are a good friend, and your kindness and decency is much appreciated.

Thanks to @IvankaTrump  for joining a bipartisan group of senators today to discuss workforce development initiatives. As chairman of the @GOPHELP  subcommittee on labor, I appreciate the administration’s commitment to helping Americans succeed today and prepare for the future.
