Beware – I have a Texan friend who is disgusted with the R’s but who adamantly refuses to consider voting for Beto. He is not an option for her. https://t.co/s87s3KcmFN

We’ve desperately missed Justice Ginsberg’s presence in the 12 months since she passed. I can think of no better way to honor her legacy than to pass the Women’s Health Protection Act.
I look forward to voting for it, and may her memory be a blessing.

“The Fair Representation Act would replace our winner-take-all district system with a fair approach for all states: Larger districts represented by multiple representatives elected proportionally with ranked-choice voting. This would upend the power of gerrymandering.”

“Luckily, there is a simple, non-partisan reform that already has momentum among reasonable Republicans and Democrats. It’s called ranked choice voting… It can address the complex issues associated with extremism and polarization.” @WinonaPosthttps://t.co/5PQcZ8Cti9

The new voting law in Texas signed by Gov. Abbott is one of the most restrictive in the nation. The bill limits the options that enabled a historic number of Texans, especially citizens of color, to vote safely in our last election.

We’re facing an all-out assault on our democracy. We need to pass the For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act to protect the sacred right to vote.
I urge Congress to send them to my desk immediately. https://t.co/0J5pY7fkJG
