On Abortion: Support nationwide access to in vitro fertilization

We want to give you and your children the opportunities to thrive--and we want families to grow. It's why we strongly support continued nationwide access to in vitro fertilization. We want to help loving moms and dads bring precious life into this world. Wesley and I believe there is no greater blessing in life than our children.

On Budget & Economy: Bidenomics isn't working; we know better

President Biden's reckless spending dug our economy into a hole and sent the cost-of-living through the roof. The worst inflation in 40 years. The highest credit card debt in history. Hardworking families are struggling to make ends meet today. And with soaring mortgage rates and sky-high child-care costs, they're also struggling to plan for tomorrow. The American people are scraping by while the president proudly proclaims Bidenomics is working!

Bless his heart. We know better. I'll never forget stopping at a gas station in Chilton County one evening. The gentleman working the counter told me that after retiring, he had to pick up that job in his 70s so he didn't have to choose between going hungry or going without his medication. He's not alone. I hear similar concerns from fellow parents. But let's be honest--it's been a minute since Joe Biden pumped gas, ran carpool, or pushed a grocery cart. Meanwhile, the rest of us see every day that our dollar doesn't go as far.

On Crime: Letting criminals walk free makes life more dangerous

Despite what President Biden tells you, our communities are not safer. For years, the left has coddled criminals and defunded the police--all while letting repeat offenders walk free.

The result is tragic but foreseeable--from our small towns to America's most iconic city streets, life is getting more and more dangerous.

On Families & Children: GOP is the party of hard-working parents & families

Just ask yourself, are you better off now than you were three years ago? There is no doubt we're at a crossroads. We all feel it.

But here's the good news: We the People are still in the driver's seat. We get to decide whether our future will grow brighter, or whether we settle for an America in decline.

Well, I know which choice our children deserve--and the choice the Republican Party is fighting for. We are the party of hardworking parents and families.

On Immigration: Biden invited border crisis with 94 executive actions

Our families are hurting. Our country can do better. And you don't have to look any further than the crisis at our southern border to see it. President Biden inherited the most secure border of all-time. But minutes after taking office, he suspended all deportations, halted construction of the border wall and announced a plan to give amnesty to millions. President Biden invited this border crisis with 94 executive actions in his first 100 days.

Just think about Laken Riley. This beautiful, 22-year- old nursing student went out on a jog one morning. But she never got the opportunity to return home. She was brutally murdered by one of the millions of illegal border crossers President Biden chose to release into our homeland. Tonight, President Biden finally said her name. But he refused to take responsibility for his own actions.

Mr. President, enough is enough. Innocent Americans are dying. And you only have yourself to blame. Reverse your policies. End this crisis. And stop the suffering.

On Principles & Values: American dream has turned into a nightmare for so many

The country we know and love seems to be slipping away. It feels like the next generation will have fewer opportunities--and less freedom--than we did. I worry my own children may not even get a shot at living their American dreams.

My American dream allowed me, the daughter of two small-business owners from rural Enterprise, Ala., to be elected to the U.S. Senate at the age of 40. Growing up sweeping the floor at my dad's hardware store and cleaning the bathroom at my mom's dance studio, I never could have imagined what my story would entail.

To think what the American dream can do across just one generation, in just one lifetime, is truly breathtaking. But right now, the American dream has turned into a nightmare for so many families. The true, unvarnished state of our union begins and ends with this: Our families are hurting. Our country can do better.

On Principles & Values: We are steeped in the blood of patriots

The task in front of us isn't an easy one. But I can promise you one thing: It is worth it. So, I am asking you, for the sake of your kids & grandkids, get into the arena. Every generation has been called to do hard things. American greatness rests in the fact that we always answer that call. It's who we are.

Never forget, we're steeped in the blood of patriots who overthrew the most powerful empire in the world. We walk in the footsteps of pioneers who tamed the wild. We now carry forward the same flame of freedom as the liberators of an oppressed Europe.

America has been tested before, and every single time, we've emerged unbowed and unbroken. Our history has been written with the grit of men and women who got knocked down. But we know their stories because they did not stay down. We are here because they stood back up. So now it's our turn--our moment to stand up and prove ourselves worthy of protecting the American dream. Together, we can reawaken the heroic spirit of a great nation.

On Technology: Chinese Communist Party conquering minds via TikTok

The Chinese Communist Party is undercutting America's workers. China is buying up our farmland, spying on our military installations, and spreading propaganda through the likes of TikTok.

The CCP knows that if it conquers the minds of our next generation, it conquers America. And what does President Biden do? He bans TikTok for government employees, but creates an account for his own campaign. You can't make this stuff up!

Look, we all recall when presidents faced national security threats with strength and resolve. That seems like ancient history. Right now, our commander in chief is not in command. The free world deserves better than a dithering and diminished leader. America deserves leaders who recognize that secure borders, stable prices, safe streets and a strong defense are the cornerstones of a great nation.

On War & Peace: No deals with Iran; no nation in retreat

Unfortunately, President Biden's weakness isn't just hurting families here at home. He's making us a punchline on the world stage. Where I'm from, your word is your bond. But for three years, this president has demonstrated that America's word doesn't mean what it used to.

From abandoning allies in his disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan to desperately pushing another dangerous deal with Iran, President Biden has failed. We've become a nation in retreat. And the enemies of freedom see an opportunity.

Putin's brutal aggression in Europe has put our allies on the brink. Iran's terrorist proxies have slaughtered Israeli Jews and American citizens. They've targeted commercial shipping. And they've attacked our troops nearly 200 times since October, killing three U.S. soldiers and two Navy SEALs.
