Discussing concerns on nominee Brett Kavanaugh w/ community leaders at Baltimore's iconic Union Baptist Church. I keep hearing from Marylanders that comes up short on civil rights, women's rights, human rights, health care. No wonder they're hiding his record.

This week, I and a bipartisan team of senators introduced an aggressive new package against Russia. The Kremlin attacked our elections and our democracy, and are working to do so again. I'm calling on all my colleagues to help us hold Putin accountable.
