Press Releases

December 18, 2019 Press Release
“Congress just impeached an American president on charges from a whistleblower we’ve never seen. Roll over James Madison.”
December 17, 2019 Press Release
“Including these provisions and initiatives will help break the cycle of poverty in North Carolina and across the rest of the country. Churches, charities, and schools are better equipped to empower Americans and pave the way for future prosperity. These provisions will improve school choice and increase graduation rates, while also ensuring that the critical work of churches and charities is not restricted by burdensome taxes and fees.”
December 17, 2019 Press Release
“It’s an ignominious start to the Senate working group when their first meeting is with the chief apologist for an exploitative system and not with the student-athletes that are being exploited. The inequity and injustices in the current NCAA model need to end quickly. That won’t happen by ceding power to the person who has blocked progress for decades. My friend Representative Cedric Richmond and I have the only viable legislation introduced in Congress, the Student-Athlete Equity Act, to end the NCAA’s moratorium on player’s rights to their name, image, and self-worth.”
December 17, 2019 Press Release
“We are thankful for the passage of the Department of Veterans Affairs Contracting Preference Consistency Act. The bi-partisan legislation keeps North Carolinians employed, restores VA contracts for IFB Solutions and National Industries for the Blind and protects jobs for people who are blind and veterans employed by AbilityOne agencies. This summer, we saw firsthand at Industries of the Blind Greensboro just how valuable these partnerships are. We are grateful that they will continue.”
December 11, 2019 Press Release
“North Carolina is the nation’s most-military friendly state and as a leader in the conference for this defense bill, we have put North Carolina’s military families first. The NDAA provides the largest pay raise in a decade for our servicemembers and provides for our most critical military programs and cutting edge equipment. This legislation keeps America safer and stronger while fully equipping our military to complete their missions and advance our interests abroad.”

“Our economy is the envy of the world. Unemployment in all of our communities is the lowest it has ever been in my lifetime. We need to ensure that our education and job-training programs keep up with the demand for skilled workers and give our students the opportunity for a lifetime of peace and prosperity. As an advocate for historically black colleges, I am thankful Congress will send the FUTURE Act to the President’s desk so we can uphold our commitment to HBCU students and institutions in North Carolina and across the country.”
December 10, 2019 Press Release
"With billions in new economic growth and valuable North Carolina jobs that depend on trade with Canada and Mexico, the USMCA means our North Carolina farmers can grow more, our manufacturers can build more and our small businesses can thrive more. For more than a year, the USMCA trade deal was held hostage by House Democrats as they put political games over American workers for the purpose of denying President Trump this huge accomplishment. I can only hope the love for the American people will overshadow their disdain for President Trump."
December 5, 2019 Press Release
“Unless it benefitted their fundraising or propped up their campaign issues page, the Senate Democrats running for President have ignored their day job and their constituents. Suddenly returning to Washington in pursuit of their ‘Spartacus moment’ is an embarrassment to our standards of judicial impartiality and a poor excuse for public service. Every Senate Democrat who filed for President should recuse themselves from impeachment proceedings; they have devoted themselves to replacing Donald Trump at the ballot box and are incapable of rendering an impartial verdict in an impeachment trial.”

“Think about this: a Mexican state that shares a 230-mile border with the U.S. holds the same State Department travel warning as Iran and Syria – both state sponsors of terrorism – because of their rampant and violent cartels. Just like terrorist organizations, these cartels commit appalling acts of violence and executions to instill fear and they are doing it just miles from American soil. While House Democrats ignore the security crisis at our border and feen over their impeachment obsession, we need to make sure the Administration is using every tool at it’s disposal to keep American families safe.”

December 4, 2019 Press Release
“It is time to get back to work for the American people and finish what they sent us here to do. Rather than focusing on real solutions to protect the integrity of our elections, House Democrats would rather satisfy their impeachment obsession at the expense of our national security and the faith in our elections.
