Congratulations, @MeghanMcCain , on a great run with @TheView . I enjoyed being with you on the show and talking Arizona. Wishing you luck on what’s next.

#Juneteenth commemorates the day enslaved people in Texas learned slavery had been abolished. Despite its significance, Juneteenth hasn’t received the recognition it deserves, which is why I was proud to co-sponsor the bill making it a federal holiday.

The most important job I’ve ever had is being a dad to my two daughters, Claudia and Claire. Now I get to do it all over again as a grandfather. Happy #FathersDay , Arizona!

Arizona has been breaking some of the worst kinds of records because of climate change. Whether it’s the heat, drought, or the raging wildfires — we can’t afford to wait any longer to tackle climate change.

15 years ago, I got to celebrate the Fourth of July a bit differently than I do these days...

Veterans have sacrificed so much for our country. We need to make sure we have their backs when they come home.

In the face of persecution and imprisonment, Nelson Mandela persevered to help bring an end to apartheid in South Africa. Today on #NelsonMandelaDay , we should all take the time to learn about him and his fight against injustice.

10 years ago today, a man tried to assassinate my wife, @GabbyGiffords , and in the process killed 6 people and injured 12 others. This anniversary is always difficult for our family, but today's feels different after the violence on Capitol Hill this week.

Wearing a mask isn’t so bad. I used to wear one almost every time I flew as a pilot in the Navy and at NASA. It’s a simple act that can stop the spread of COVID-19 by protecting yourself and those around you. So, make sure to #MaskUpAZ .

This report that the administration has had no response to Russia putting a bounty on the lives of American soldiers in Afghanistan is just staggering. As a combat veteran, I can’t imagine how this could go without a response. We need answers.

@GabbyGiffords  is one of the toughest people I know. She’s fought so hard for her recovery and to regain her speech. And tonight, she gave her longest speech since she was shot nearly 10 years ago. She reminds me every day to never give up.

I am deeply honored that Arizonans have trusted me to be their next United States Senator and to serve in this seat once held by Senator John McCain.

The American people deserve answers about this intelligence and the lack of response by the administration. We need to have the backs of our troops, especially those serving in combat zones.
