Over their lifetimes, workers and small businesses have contributed into Social Security and Medicare so Arizonans could have a secure retirement that includes health care. I won't let those earned benefits be gambled on the stock market or turned into a voucher system.

Arizona is fortunate to have a rich and diverse Native American history. On #NativeAmericanHeritageDay , we honor and celebrate Arizona’s Tribal Nations and the contributions they’ve made to our state.

My campaign is not taking a dime of corporate PAC money. Period. Arizonans will know that I'm accountable to them. #ForArizona

Until we get skyrocketing drug prices under control, nearly one in four seniors will struggle to afford their prescription drugs — drugs they desperately need.

I'm excited to see what @NASA  and @UArizona  can learn about the Sun from the Parker Solar Probe.

Eighteen years ago today, the crew of #STS108  and I launched on the Space Shuttle Endeavour. It was my first trip into space. See how the shuttle glides through the sky? Well, let's just say it doesn't feel all that smooth from the inside.

Coming up on a few on @abc15  to talk about our campaign and the issues that matter to Arizonans. Tune in! #ForArizona

Pensacola was the first stop on my journey to becoming a naval aviator that included a brief stop in Pearl Harbor. There are dedicated sailors, civilians, and military families on these bases, and they need to be kept safe. Thank you to the first responders who arrived on scene.

Dreamers are Americans in every way except for a piece of paper. It's been nine years to the day since the House voted to give them a path to citizenship, so why hasn't the Senate voted to do the same?

As a pilot in the , I was trained to deliver nuclear weapons. EVERYTHING we did with these weapons was deadly serious. No jokes, no threats, no mistakes. Every soldier, sailor, airman and marine gets that. Feel free to reach out if you’d like to discuss this further.

@realDonaldTrump : Gabby and I are waiting for you to go straight to camera & denounce white supremacists. How long will we have to wait?

Our nation will never be able to repay the Navajo Code Talkers. Take a moment to remember the life of Alfred Newman. It was lived in service. Rest in peace, Marine.

17 people murdered at a Florida high school today. , , . can we talk about the Las Vegas mass shooting yet?

8 years ago, I got a call that changed my life forever. Gabby was shot in the head. 6 of her constituents died. 12 others were injured. And Congress has done nothing ever since. We take a big leap forward today with the introduction of background checks.

Trump’s Space Force would cost billions of taxpayer dollars in redundant spending to satisfy an ego. My take on why it’s a dumb idea.

Actually, it's , , & —and especially the airlines— who deserve credit for this. But, if you're going to take credit for zero airline deaths in 2017 then you should take responsibility for the tens of thousands of gun deaths, too. #lawsmatter 

The NRA used to believe in reasonable gun laws to keep people safe. But today, NRA leaders speak more for the gun industry than they do for gun owners, and they do so at the expense of public safety.

I've served our country in the Navy and at NASA. Now, I'm running to serve in the U.S. Senate because our state needs someone who is willing to stand up #ForArizona .
