In a sea of offensive attacks on women, this is really something. Justifying the Alabama legislature's draconian, misogynist abortion ban by pretending you're doing it to protect rape victims is disgusting. This scoop from tells you all you need to know.

You can’t hack paper. That's why I cosponsored 's bill that requires paper ballots in our national elections. We need a paper trail. RT if you agree.

. says he’s concerned by natural disasters like hurricanes and forest fires, but somehow isn’t worried about the unprecedented carbon levels driving these crises. Guess that’s what happens when you nominate an oil and gas lobbyist to run the Interior.

The abortion bans passed by states like Alabama, Georgia, and Mississippi are trying to turn American women into second-class citizens. ⚖️ We. ⚖️ Will. ⚖️ Not. ⚖️ Let. ⚖️ Them. ⚖️ Win.

Children are dying, Trump is doubling down, and Republicans in Congress are nowhere to be seen. I’m tired of excuses. We need actionable information on how they plan to prevent any further child endangerment.

I'm proud that my campaign is powered by small-dollar donors. It's important for folks to know that I'm working for the people, not the big special interests. It's also why I don't take corporate PAC $. We need a government by and for the people!

Republicans are waging a full-on war against women & girls. They're putting their lives at risk. They're telling girls who are raped they must deliver their attacker's child. Women's & girls' constitutional rights are under attack and we must fight back.

Children sleeping on dirt and gravel. Mothers clutching babies under foil blankets. Families crammed into tents, unsure of what happens to them next. We will be judged for this evil by generations to come. Is this who we are now?

Today, I urge all of us to embrace that same call to service. For me, that means ending the gun violence epidemic, taking on climate change, passing Medicare for All, closing the wage gaps & fighting every attempt to undermine women’s health and women’s rights.
