Today’s news reminds us that foreign adversaries are still working hard to sow division in our country by seizing on the controversies du jour. It’s more important than ever that our leaders do not fan these flames—and instead rise above to unify and focus on our commonalities.

Medicaid expansion is a reality! Virginians can apply beginning November 1. And then vote on November 6 to safeguard this progress. Mitch McConnell said this week that a GOP majority could vote *again* to repeal health care for millions. We can’t let that happen.

When Mitch McConnell says "completely start over" here, what he means is take us back to when you could be discriminated against if you have a pre-existing condition. And that tens of millions would lose their insurance. We have to prevent the country from going back to that.

President Trump’s response to Jamal Khashoggi’s disappearance reveals a man more willing to trust authoritarian leaders than reliable intelligence. It’s insulting to Jamal’s family and colleagues that this is what’s coming out of the world’s most powerful office.

Today is the final day to register to vote in Virginia. When more of us vote, our elected bodies represent our values. When we don’t, they don’t. So don't let today go by without double-checking your registration and reminding others to do the same. Go to .

A very warm welcome home to Pastor Brunson — thankful he is finally back with his family on American soil.

This action from the Trump administration is bad news for anyone who breathes air.

My heart breaks for these lost lives. This was a dangerous storm and Virginians should continue to take all precautions as we recover. Please be safe.

Mass shootings in this country happen far too often and are far too deadly—but Congress hasn't acted. So today I'm joining and countless other leaders and advocates to raise $1 million for candidates who will step up. Will you step up too?

Hey Bryce, good question. We need comprehensive immigration reform. I voted for it in 2013. It included record investments in border security and a path to citizenship. And we've got to reunite families who were separated at the border.

Hi Anna. I oppose drilling for oil off Virginia’s coasts and wish President Trump had not pulled us out of the Paris climate deal, which would’ve done so much globally to tackle climate change. We should be leading on protecting our planet - it’s the only one we've got.

I support a woman’s constitutional freedom to make her own health care decisions, and I oppose efforts to criminalize women or their doctors for making their own reproductive health care decisions.

Hey Miranda, good question. I think there's a lot to address here. But for starters, we need to tackle the growing opioid crisis and addiction issues - and I helped pass a comprehensive law to expand treatment and prevention.

Hi Bailey. I absolutely believe in equal rights for women - I support the Equal Rights Amendment, women’s reproductive freedom, and fair pay legislation. There are more details on my website, too:

This is so false. Today the Senate is having to vote to overturn President Trump’s expansion of insurance plans that don’t protect people with pre-existing conditions. If he actually cared, he would stop sabotaging health care and support our efforts.

Jamal Khashoggi is a Virginia resident, so his disappearance is personal to me. President Trump needs to raise this case immediately with Saudi Arabia and Turkey and demand answers. We should be extending support from our federal agencies for a real investigation.

This is a most serious charge. I’ve contacted the State Department. We must get to the bottom of what happened and then impose strong consequences. Targeting journalists must stop.
