"As your U.S. Senator, it’s my honor to deploy to D.C. to fight for our freedoms, way of life, and future. This is a continuation of my service in uniform with the same oath to protect and defend the Constitution. Arizona's 2020 Senate election will be the pivotal race to decide the Senate majority and direction of our country. I will continue to help transform the activist judiciary by confirming conservative judges, protect our liberties, rebuild our economy, support our military/vets, hold china accountable, lower the cost of prescription drugs and secure our border. We also must continue to stop the extreme agenda of the left."
