I hope that Dr. Ford will reconsider and testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday. It is my understanding that the Committee has offered to hold either a public or a private session, whichever would make her more comfortable.

Replying to @SenatorCollins
Such an approach would provide more continuity, elicit the most information & allow an in-depth examination of the allegations.

What an honor to spend an evening with 38 of America’s heroes, recipients of the Medal of Honor, and their families & guests. Sec. Mattis, and Chris Wallace were recognized, and I was honored to receive the Distinguished Citizen Award from the Medal of Honor Society.

17 years ago, I joined my colleagues on the Capitol steps where we sang “God Bless America” in the wake of the terrorist attacks on our country. We gathered together in a demonstration of resolve & patriotism, not as Republicans & Democrats but as Americans.

In what seemed like a moment, September 11th was transformed from a day like any other into one that, forever, will stand alone. The loss we relive reminds us of the value of all that we must protect. The heroism reminds us of the unconquerable spirit of the American people.

Spent a wonderful hour with President George H.W. Bush at his home in Kennebunkport yesterday. President Bush served his country faithfully and well. And how he loves the State of Maine!

I look forward to welcoming back to the Senate my friend Jon Kyl, who served Arizona so ably in the past and will do so once again now that Governor Ducey has appointed him to fill John McCain’s seat.

Tom & I are on our way to the memorial service for John McCain at the National Cathedral. Yesterday’s ceremony in the Rotunda was a moving tribute to John.
