American public servants who were injured under mysterious circumstances in Cuba and China shouldn’t have to fend for themselves. I fought to include language in a bill that will soon be signed into law that rights this wrong.

After careful consideration of his record and reviewing the limited documents made available to the U.S. Senate, I have come to the conclusion that I cannot support Judge Kavanaugh’s #SCOTUS  nomination.

Wishing a very happy birthday to Justice Ginsburg, a heroine for women's equality & women's rights. Her trailblazing career has touched the lives of all women in this country. A true inspiration. ?
