Every American—no matter what zip code they live in—should have the freedom to vote safely and securely. That's the bottom line. This week, Congress must act to guarantee this fundamental right and protect our democracy by voting to move the #FreedomToVoteAct forward.

PFAS pollution threatens the wellbeing of our children, families, and communities. Taking steps to rid our waters and our environment of these harmful chemicals is crucial. This is an important move by @POTUS. We need to move with urgency, and there’s more work to be done here.

For years, I’ve pushed our government to address the dangerous levels of PFAS in Wisconsin’s waters that have posed a risk to our public health and environment. Proud to work with an administration and @EPA that is finally cracking down on these forever chemicals.

A soldier, general and diplomat. A trailblazer and patriot. He wasn't afraid to own up to his mistakes and buck his party when it was the right thing to do. Thank you for your service to our nation. RIP. cnn.com/2021/10/18/politics/…

I’m deeply saddened to hear about the passing of my friend Secretary Colin Powell ­– a truly decent man and a shining example of what American leadership can be. I felt privileged just to know him, and I’ll miss him dearly.

Marcelle & I are devastated by Colin Powell's untimely passing. He was a wise, decent & generous spirit. He & Alma were married on the same day that we were and most yrs on that day we'd talk with & tease each other. Our hearts are heavy & our thoughts are w/ Alma & their family.
