In His Own Words


"While the Trump Administration tries to turn the clock back 50 years on women's autonomy and reproductive rights, I will fight for the rights of women to make their own choices concerning their bodies and reproductive health." 1 

"It’s clearly in America’s interests to provide assistance to assure that Israel remains a strong and secure ally in the Middle East.." 2

"I have been deeply troubled by the efforts of some to turn support for Israel into a partisan issue. I will work with others of all political stripes to support Israel’s security and move the peace process forward." 3
