In His Own Words


"What has always been in the platform is strong support for the U.S.-Israel relationship, recognizing the need for it to be bipartisan, stressing the importance of a two-state solution." 1 

“Despite much progress over the last century, women still do not get paid as much as men for the same jobs, they are too often victims of domestic and sexual violence, and women are not guaranteed equal rights even in our Constitution. As a Member of Congress, I will work hard to ensure that women are provided equality of pay and opportunity, and make certain that our criminal justice system is designed to end the epidemic of violence against women." 2
