As the weather gets chilly, we want to ensure all Granite Staters have access to COVID-19 boosters. Mobile vaccination vans are now available to provide free doses. To schedule a mobile clinic, go to: or call (603) 826-6500.

Following my visits to Albania & Bosnia and Herzegovina, I stopped in the UK to discuss shared security challenges with one of our closest allies. Together, the transatlantic alliance can continue to advance democracy amid Putin’s war in Ukraine.

These numbers are startling: 2.5M middle & high school students are using e-cigarettes. Tragically, it confirms what I’ve heard from NH administrators, teachers, students & families. This is a crisis targeting our kids & Congress need to address it now.

We need to hold those accountable who are targeting kids, educate parents & invest in prevention. I have legislation to address these priorities & encourage lawmakers on both sides of the aisle to work with me to drive these forward & keep our kids safe.

It was a privilege to tour this incredible exhibit at London’s @BarbicanCentre  w/ @USAmbUK  recognizing female icons from Iran. Iranian artist Soheila Sokhanvari highlights the courage of women who have sustained Iran’s feminist movement & fight for the most basic human rights.

Where does the intrusion end? NH GOP policies deny young people education to make safe choices, block access to repro care, deny safe access to abortions & all while opposing funding for social service programs for women & children. The hypocrisy knows no bounds. It has to stop.

The annual @NHFF  starts today🎬! This festival is an opportunity to enjoy incredible movies from filmmakers in NH and across America. My granddaughter, Elle, is participating this year, and I’m excited for her and all those being featured.

Congrats to Ryan Cashin for being named @ManchesterFD’s new chief! This is a testament to nearly three decades of service in Manchester—looking forward to working w/ you in this new role.

Retweet if you think the Trump administration should stop blocking the design of the new $20 bill. (image via @nytimes )

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. ?

Glad to meet with Pakistan’s Foreign Minister@BBhuttoZardari  today to discuss continued support for our Afghan allies, women & girls' empowerment & counterterrorism efforts. As Pakistan recovers from devastating floods, the Senate is committed to provide humanitarian support.

Abortion is health care. RT if you agree.

Citizens United was a disastrous decision that paved the way for special interests to funnel dark money into our elections. Dark money should never dilute the voices of the people – we must ensure our government is reflective of the people & it starts w/ passing the DISCLOSE Act.

I cannot support Director Mike Pompeo’s nomination to serve as Secretary of State. My statement:

RT if you trust women to make their own decisions about their health.

This can’t be ignored or forgotten. There is evidence that Russian intelligence operatives paid the Taliban to kill our troops in Afghanistan. What is @realDonaldTrump  & his admin doing to protect our troops? He had a call with Putin last week…

China’s military provocations against our allies and partners in the Asia-Pacific amid a global crisis are concerning. @marcorubio  and I are calling on @EsperDoD  to maintain our military’s readiness in the Pacific & ensure the U.S. stands ready to fulfill its defense commitments.

Chinese authorities are arresting hundreds in Hong Kong to squash free speech & committing appalling human rights violations against Uighur citizens. U.S. must stand strongly against China’s despicable violations of human rights. Message from the Trump admin must be loud & clear!
