Working Nights & Weekends


Here are a few things I thought you might want to know:

1. Make Congress Work Again

2. Our Letter

Last week, 15 senators and I sent a letter to Majority Leader McConnell offering our support for working nights, weekends, and through the August recess in order to confirm President Trump's nominees and avoid last-minute funding battles.

3. Willing To Work Nights & Weekends

A group of senators who have signed the letter joined me this week to call on Congress to pick up the pace.
