Thanks to you

Thanks to our amazing team, we won. I’m grateful for the tens of thousands of Connecticut voters who put their trust in me to continue fighting for them in Congress. I’m humbled by your support.

It’s not enough

Our hearts are still raw and broken for the students and teachers who lost their lives in Uvalde, and for the families, friends, peers, and mentors left without them. We grieve with the people of Uvalde and for Texas, from Connecticut to Arizona, to Florida, Nevada, and Colorado.

That is not right. And to say we are disappointed, angry, and outraged…well, that just doesn’t cut it.
 
We don’t take rights away in this country. We don’t strip away privacy, and we don’t ban a person’s ability to make informed healthcare decisions because we disagree with it.

Results you can see

I thought I’d update you on some of the progress we’ve made here in the Fourth District. Just last month I secured over $12.4 million for 10 critical community projects across the district.

History Long Overdue

For the first time in its 233-year history, a Black woman has been confirmed to sit on the Supreme Court. Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s qualifications, record on the bench, and her historic achievement today speak for themselves.

It took us over two centuries to take this significant step, and we will continue to work to break the barriers that prevent Black leaders from reaching the upper echelons of government and many parts of society.
