It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas…🎄

Over the weekend, my husband, Gerry, put up our lovely Christmas trees in Illinois, and here in Washington, I also decided to decorate. Happy holidays!

The issues that impact rural America and our farmers can’t take a back seat - Democrats need to show up everywhere to get all of our communities on board.

When Barack Obama campaigned in the Midwest, he pulled in rural voices and made sure everyone got a seat at the table.

He may not have won every rural county, but he earned a lot of rural votes.

A good leader knows the value of showing up.

On #CNNSOTU, @jaketapper speaks to @RepCheri, @ScottJenningsKY, @finneyk & @JonahDispatch about the upcoming Georgia Senate runoff election and the newly proposed Democratic primary schedule that makes South Carolina the first state to vote.

It was great to join @ScottJenningsKY, @finneyk and @JonahDispatch this morning on @CNN State of the Union with @jaketapper.

Regardless of which state primaries are first, our rural communities need a voice at the table. Thanks for welcoming a Midwesterner’s view on the debate!

This week, I got to sit down with reporters like @rj_rodgers to chat about my near-decade of service in Congress.

As a former journalist, I’m so grateful for the important work they do in our community. Stay tuned for the next stops on my media tour on December 9th!

The No. 1 priority has been “doing right” by the constituents, she said.

Congratulations to my colleagues, @RepJeffries, @RepKClark and @RepPeteAguilar, on their respective victories to lead @HouseDemocrats in the 118th Congress!
