Thank you Quinn for your tireless advocacy on affordability. I am so proud of you and all of my fellow Minnesotans who are helping fight for lower drug prices. Keep up the good work.

Great Lakes shipping has a big impact to Minnesota’s economy…$1.4 billion worth. That’s why I am supporting funding for the Soo Locks so ports like Two Harbors and Duluth can continue to flourish.

How about we get an honest answer about what happened in the first meeting with Vladimir Putin before the President schedules another meeting with the leader of a hostile foreign power who tried to undermine our democracy?

When my staff & I meet with veterans, we often hear about trouble receiving coverage for hearing loss & tinnitus. I intro'd a bill to right that wrong. Bc if you served our country & experienced a health related issue bc of it, we need to take care of you.

Very glad heeded the call to extend humanitarian protections for Somalia. This is a relief for hundreds of people who would have been forced to leave—including many folks in Minnesota. Now we need to work on a long-term solution.

Constantly impressed by the work Minnesotans do every day to better their communities. Today I sent my staff to to hear how it's promoting economic opportunities in SW Minnesota, and increasing access to affordable, quality child care and early education.

Q: If calls breastfeeding the “clinical gold standard for infant feeding,” then why did the Trump Admin attempt to undermine a World Health Assembly resolution supporting it? A: To protect special interests. I'm pressing to explain.

Very soon, the Trump admin could make a decision that would send hundreds of Somali nationals who have been living in the US—incl. many Minnesotans—back to Somalia. Forcing ppl to return to a dangerous country is inhumane. I can promise you I'm fighting to keep for Somalia.

A cross-border pride march from International Falls, Minnesota to Fort Frances, Ontario? Wish I could have been there, and glad that Minnesota participated in this impressive celebration of the LGBTQ community.

Minnesotans who paid into a pension deserve to retire with peace of mind that their retirement is secure. But right now, those hard-earned pensions are at risk. I sat down with Minnesota to update them on my work to fix this problem.

Pres. Trump is denying Russia is still interfering in our elections while his top intel official says “the warning lights are blinking red.” Boy, wouldn’t it be nice to have a President who was focused on making sure a foreign power couldn’t interfere in our democracy? AGAIN?

President Trump is attempting to backpedal on every commitment our country has made towards fighting climate change, and his pick for the Supreme Court has a record that says Brett Kavanaugh is likely to be nothing but an enabler.
