It's not enough to just win the presidency, we must flip the Senate blue if we want to create the change we want to see. And that starts with sending Mitch McConnell packing in Kentucky. Who's with me?

Quoted @realDonaldTrump

Mail-In Ballot fraud found in many elections. People are just now seeing how bad, dishonest and slow it is. Election results could be delayed for months. No more big election night answers? 1% not even counted in 2016. Ridiculous! Just a formula for RIGGING an Election....

.@realDonaldTrump is lying again about mail-in ballots. In Oregon we've voted by mail the last 20 years & the cases of fraud have been 0.0000001% of all votes cast. 0.0000001%! Vote by Mail is the way to go. ESPECIALLY IN THE MIDDLE OF A PANDEMIC. https://t.co/ILKhZKZWdY

Quoted @JoeBiden

When we spend taxpayer money, we should use it to buy American products & support American jobs. But under Trump, the rate of federal contractors offshoring jobs more than doubled. It's unacceptable. I'll invest $400 billion in American-made products & keep jobs here at home. https://t.co/iNpPuMzFqC

Joe is absolutely right. We should be investing in homegrown jobs, not shipping them overseas. Great to see @JoeBiden come out with a strong Buy American plan that will create jobs here at home and invest in our working families. https://t.co/71OnNTp8t1

Vote by mail is easy, safe and secure. Pass it on. https://t.co/QAANFjS0d6

Fighting systemic racism starts at home in our own communities. I'm so proud of all the work @CameronWhitten & the @BlackResiliency are doing to help Black Portlanders in need. We're all in this together. #blacklivesmatter #wedoheal https://t.co/qUl8V0Tb3D

As much as I love being home in Oregon, I shouldn't be here right now. I should be in our nation's capital working to pass another Covid-19 relief bill. But Mitch McConnell is refusing to do the work. It’s a shameful dereliction of duty.

No one is above the law. Not even you, Mr. President. https://t.co/BUTqw6Ba85

Have you met @BarbaraBollier yet? She's a Democrat running for the U.S. Senate to represent Kansas. Yes, Kansas is in play. If we can win this race, we're that much closer to taking back the Senate majority from Mitch McConnell. https://t.co/08Mypt4wDk

The person with the most votes should win. Period. We should abolish the Electoral College.

Republicans have spent a decade trying to gut birth control coverage in Obamacare. They are so out of touch. Health care coverage should cover birth control. Full stop. https://t.co/K0V2ljtPbQ

A new poll out of Maine is showing @SaraGideon in the lead! Keep it up Sara and team! We're with you all the way! #2020Election #FlipTheSenate https://t.co/4aZOGAyA7S

We've been voting by mail in Oregon for 20 years. If anyone tells you it can't be done safely and securely, they're lying to you.

Here's my to-do list for the next 119 days: ⏺Fight systemic racism ⏺Fix the Constitution (#Amend13) ⏺Get emergency COVID aid to American people ⏺Demand Equality for All ⏺Hold Trump accountable ⏺Flip the Senate ⏺Elect @JoeBiden president Who's in?

More than 130,000 Americans have died of COVID-19. Many of those could still be alive today if Trump and other Republican officials hadn't ignored, ridiculed, and undermined scientific facts. The climate crisis is no different. We have to act. https://t.co/IS6WEfS45r

Trump is trying to divide us. We can do so much better than this, America. Vote him out. https://t.co/316AB7UOYX

In #XMAP: @InPlainSightMap's nationwide, artist-led protest against migrant detention, "phrases like 'Care Not Cages' and 'Unseen Mothers' will momentarily hover above 80 locations" (@nytimes). https://t.co/n59jSeOEPU https://t.co/UHTz3PQ2GQ

If you think racism isn’t alive and well, check this out: an election commissioner who distinguishes between “The blacks” and “People.”

This is the racist core of voter suppression. https://t.co/MVov7RYxDz https://t.co/tCr2bTirtO

Systemic racism and slavery are alive and well in the Constitution. It's time to #Amend13 and end the forced labor of incarcerated Americans. RT if you agree. https://t.co/SPpWBQpgZV
