“At a time of global uncertainty, I hope we can come together as a nation to recognize the progress we’ve made over the last year- and that we can come together in Congress to pass bipartisan policies that address inflation, fix our supply chains, and lower cost of everyday expenses from prescription drugs to gas and groceries.

“I appreciated the President’s attention to those issues tonight, and I will hold him accountable to his words. We need clear and consistent leadership to tackle the concerns that I am hearing from Kansans and build on bipartisan successes like the infrastructure law and our work to bring down health care costs. I stand ready to work with anyone who shares that goal.”

(Response to President’s State of the Union Address, 3/1/22)

“I was moved by President Zelenskyy’s leadership as he addressed Congress from Kyiv, where he strands alongside his people. We must continue to stand with the Ukrainian people as well-not only through our words but through our actions, with humanitarian and military aid.”    Facebook 3/16/22
