I am committed to electing Democrats across the country. Since November, I've traveled across the country to campaign for 3 state legislature candidates. 2 have won and the third will be decided in a week. Join me in this critical fight.
For all of Donald J. Trump's distractions of scapegoating minorities and retaliating against the press, that's not going to get wages to go up or build an economy that works for all of us. Our message must be about wages and jobs, the security of all of us together, and individual freedoms. That's what I'm focused on and why I've traveled to Delaware and Iowa to campaign for progressive Democrats who can get things done for our country.
I'm endorsing Mayor Pete Buttigieg for DNC Chair. He's balanced budgets. He served in Afghanistan. Howard Dean probably said it best: If we don't #PickPete for #DNC Chair, we're going to be regretting it for years to come.
Yesterday, the U.S. Army Corps closed the Dakota Access Pipeline (#DAPL) protest camp. For nearly over a year, the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and other native peoples peacefully protested against the construction of the DAPL. For centuries, our government has humiliated and ignored treaties we have signed with Native American tribes, violating land and water rights that belong to their people. Construction of the DAPL will bulldoze sacred Native sites, and once completed, will threaten their main access to clean water.
Protests in Standing Rock may no longer be allowed, but we can still take action. Divest your personal finances from a bank that is financing the construction of the DAPL. Follow the instructions here. #WaterIsLife #MniWiconi #NoDAPL #StandingRock Sacred Stone Camp
Well-run administrations will have all of these characteristics: entrepreneurial, collaborative, performance-measured, interactive. Data-driven governance may even have the power to overcome significant ideological divisions within the U.S. There is far more that unites us than divides us. The innovation that’s emerging in cities is going to lead us into that new day.
There is good reason why the vast majority of police chiefs and Sheriffs in the nation do not want their offices deputized into Donald J. Trump's new #Immigrant Internment Force: it undermines their public safety mission. Local police know they cannot make our neighborhoods safer if whole groups of people are afraid to call the police about true bad guys or to work with the police to solve crime.
“Sometimes, as Democrats, we kid ourselves into thinking the only office that matters is the presidency and the only legislature that matters is the United States Senate,” Mr. O’Malley said. “But you can’t be a national party if that’s the warped perspective you maintain.”
“I think you’re going to see more young people running for office for the first time in these next elections"
Winning elections for Democrats - starting at the local level - is the next step of the resistance against Donald J. Trump. Since the Women's March, I'm proud to have traveled to Iowa and Delaware to campaign for local candidates. We need to retake city councils and state legislatures before we retake Congress and the White House. #Resist
Donald J. Trump nominated Scott Pruitt, who is unqualified, to be the Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). He has spent his career waging war against clean air, clean water, and climate change legislation. It's no surprise that fossil fuel companies have donated millions to his political causes.
Call your Senators to oppose his confirmation. The Senate votes today at 1pm EST.
He's called climate science a "religious belief" and sued the EPA more th...an a dozen times. He even sued Maryland -- from his job in Oklahoma -- to try and stop us from restoring the health of our Chesapeake Bay. He along with nearly two dozen other state Attorney Generals didn't want to see us succeed in cleaning our Bay for fear they would be asked to clean their own bodies of water. We beat him then, and we can beat him again. #RejectPruitt #PollutingPruitt
Proud of my friends in Iowa and across the nation for organizing these massive marches protesting Donald J. Trump's deportations and immigrant-hating policies #DayWithoutImmigrants #DiaSinInmigrantes DREAM Iowa United We Dream Make the Road New York
