Calling all new and newly-energized Democrats at DSU and across Kent County! Come out for the next Delaware Democratic Party campaign volunteer fair - March 22nd at Grottos in Dover.
As we wait for every vote to be counted in PA-18, I join Democrats around the country in congratulating Conor Lamb for running a strong, smart campaign.
I recently joined Sen. Bob Corker and Zippy Duvall, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation, to make the case for food aid reform. At a time when four countries are near famine, we can feed millions of additional people with the same funding - if we can work together.
I joined Kasie Hunt to talk about trade, Russia, and immigration this weekend.
Today, I introduced a measure to address another loophole in our background check system by requiring federal officials to notify state law enforcement whenever a person prohibited from buying a gun tries to do so. Currently, if a convicted felon or other prohibited person attempts to buy a gun and fails the background check in Delaware, nothing happens.
This measure is just one of many common sense bills now before Congress that address flaws in our laws and the system. It's time for action.
I spent Monday morning talking with high school students in Delaware, and they are right to demand answers and action from members of Congress and other elected representatives. We can see action on reasonable, common sense gun control measures, but it will take an on-going, focused effort by people from across the country to continue to demand change.
Interested in getting involved in campaigns in Delaware? Come out to the Delaware Democrats' Campaign Volunteer Fair in Newark, starting at 1pm tomorrow, February 24th.
America has been the land of entrepreneurs and innovation, but the rate of new startup businesses has dropped and we need to do more to support innovators with the vision to be job creators.
I am hopeful that we will get a vote today on my bipartisan plan with Sen. John McCain to give Dreamers a legal path and to further protect our borders. We can do this if we work together.
I met with a group of Dreamers in Washington yesterday, and we agree - Congress needs to fix DACA now. I know we can come together to get this done.
We cannot afford to wait to protect the integrity of Mueller's investigation and the independence of the special counsel.
I will continue to fight to protect access to Delaware's bankruptcy courts - because of our expertise and because it matters to our economy.
Thank you, 47 ABC for having me on to discuss progress on CHIP funding and how we can come together to address remaining pressing issues.
It was just a year ago when my daughter Maggie and I travelled to Washington with dozens of Delawareans to join thousands of Americans to join the Women’s March on Washington.
We marched in an incredible wave of civic activism, with people from all walks of life, all generations, all economic, religious and racial backgrounds. I had never been more proud of my country.
It was an incredible moment and one which I will not soon forget....
No matter what you’re marching for - equal rights for women, for equal pay, a woman’s right to choose, to standing up for victims of sexual assault, I am proud to march with you.
I am proud of your activism and I encourage you to keep marching. Keep organizing. Keep holding your elected officials accountable and keep gathering together in our neighborhoods and all over the world to define our next steps and envision how to transform the energy we experienced at Women’s Marches into local and national action.
Over the last year, many of you have called, emailed, texted or approached me personally and asked me, “What can I do?” The answer is simple. Get involved. Find and support candidates that have our shared goals and values. Continue to speak out. Continue to attend marches like in Newark and continue to support one another.
There is no doubt this movement has grown stronger and I thank you for doing your part here in Delaware and all over the world.
