As we celebrate Independence Day, I’m grateful to work with an expanding coalition of leaders and organizations working tirelessly for more choice and more voice for all. We built this system, and we can fix it, and achieve a more perfect union. Fight on! 🇺🇸
Fact: Open primaries means we could vote for any candidate running in the primary, not just one party’s candidates. We’re a nonpartisan coalition fighting to bring more choice & more voice to Arkansans. Join us: http://openprimariesarkansas.org
TX Gov. Greg Abbott ordering mandatory face masks in public places in counties with more than 20 #COVID19 cases
Great mission and team collaborating at a critical time for America. I just signed up, and you should too.🇺🇸
It's unclear how Herman Cain contracted COVID, but per @NBC News @Monica Alba, Cain attended the Trump rally in Tulsa on June 20 as an official campaign surrogate & posted a photo of himself inside the BOK Center without wearing a mask.
The real problem is that there are now three GOP congressional nominees who are QAnon supporters.
I worked with many of these folks, and they’re deeply kind, thoughtful, talented, and dedicated patriots. Most spent decades working for Republicans, and they don’t take lightly the decision to support Biden.
When I joined the GOP it used to be pro-trade, pro-immigration, and believed in the critical role of US global leadership. It’s unrecognizable on those issues today.
Tell a person’s priorities by where they spend their money. Tell a country’s priorities by what they insist on opening first. It speaks volumes that the looming school and childcare crisis don’t command more attention.
Patriots unite in North Carolina to restore decency and competence to the White House. Proud to ally with leaders like @Judge Bob Orr from @Republicans for a New President to host a principled convention and grow the movement for a new, better president: https://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/politics-government/article243901932.html
For those of you, like me, ever in search of bright spots:
New Gallup poll—for the first time since Gallup started asking, percentage who support increased immigration (34%) exceeds the percentage who want decreased immigration (28%, a new low): https://news.gallup.com/poll/313106/americans-not-less-immigration-first-time.aspx
I knew it would be this bad. The narcissism, fact denial, dictator admiration, bigotry, and false bravado could only lead to disaster for the country. Yet, I hoped everyone who disagreed would be right, we’d avoid crises, and I would be proven wrong.
I served in uniform for 25 years under Democrat & Republican presidents and none of them ever had a SECDEF make a statement that they took our enemies trying to kill us seriously ... we never doubted whose side they were on.
This from @Scott Gottlieb, MD is such an important point. As one education expert told me, “the priority should have always been how to open schools, not bars.”
"I would be prioritizing opening the schools. I would do what it takes from a policy standpoint to ... open the schools," says @Scott Gottlieb, MD. "If you can't get children back into schools you really can't restart the economy in a robust fashion."
