Congratulations to Karen Handel for her hard-fought and resounding victory last night. Nancy Pelosi and the ultra-liberal Democrats from coast to coast put everything they had into Georgia’s 6th, and they still couldn’t find a path to victory. The real winners last night were the people of Georgia who elected someone who will represent their values and fight to tackle our nation’s most pressing issues. #GA06
Our current system of forest management has left our national forests diseased, dying, and vulnerable to wildfires. This collaboration in common sense forest management practices provides practical solutions that give more control to local stewards to improve the long-term health of the forest, create jobs, and reduce wildfire risk.
Yesterday’s tragic events have shaken everyone on Capitol Hill, but we are all together tonight -Democrats and Republicans - at the #CongressionalBaseballGame! Regardless of your political party, this evening will be chance for us to put our differences aside and raise money for a great cause.
As we pray for Majority Whip Steve Scalise, the brave Capitol Hill Police officers, the staffers, and all those affected by yesterday’s horrific incident, the House passed a resolution today recognizing the heroic Capitol Police officers and first responders who put their lives on the line to protect everyone at the congressional baseball practice. We joined together across party lines in prayer, hope, and sincere gratitude for the service of those brave police officers.
I joined Maria Bartiromo on Fox Business News this morning to discuss the repeal of Dodd-Frank the House passed today and moving forward on the Republican agenda. When I was in Davenport this week, I met with many in the community that are concerned that local banks do not have the flexibility to provide loans to our farmers, small business owners, and people in their town. On average we have lost one community bank a day since Dodd-Frank passed – today we took a step towards fixing that.
