The People’s House is officially back in business.

Congratulations to the 56th Speaker of the House, Mike Johnson of Louisiana.  Speaker Johnson and I were both sworn into Congress in 2017, and I am confident he’ll lead this chamber guided by a commitment to the Constitution and the principles that make our nation great.

In fact, that’s exactly what we saw from him as soon as he had taken the oath of office.  The first bill considered under his tenure was a resolution formalizing America’s support for our ally Israel.  Our two nations have always been united by shared values of democracy, self-determination, and respect for all people.  I was proud to vote in favor of the resolution, and to see it pass with overwhelming bipartisan support.
