Fill the Seat

Friends,

Wednesday morning we dedicated a Flag to Officer Jackson Winkeler who was tragically killed in the line of duty this past January. He sacrificed his life to protect ours. 

Our heroes in blue deserve all of our respect and support. May God bless and protect our law enforcement officers and their families.

Judge ACB Hearings

Judge Barrett has shown the country her impressive legal knowledge and expertise, and proved that there is no doubt that she belongs on the Supreme Court. Judge Barrett made clear that she would continue to put the Constitution and rule of law above any personal interests, views, and beliefs.

Once again, Democrats attempted to trip her up, but Judge Barrett blew every one of their failed efforts away. They continue to recognize that Judge Barrett's credentials are beyond reproach, so their members tried, instead, to distract the public by distorting the record on the issue of health care, inaccurately claiming that Republicans do not want to ensure that individuals with pre-existing conditions receive quality and affordable insurance coverage. 

Those assertions are completely false. In fact, Republicans have repeatedly sought to protect patients with pre-existing conditions.

Judge Amy Coney Barrett has made commitment to impartiality. She has shown her deep understanding of the law. I look forward to seeing her confirmed on October 22nd.

Internet in Marlboro

My sincere thanks to all those in the agriculture industry who work to provide for our state and country. I know how important agriculture is to our district and will never stop fighting for farmers!
