National Security

Ensuring America’s national security is of upmost importance. Our government has a constitutional obligation to provide for the common defense. We need a comprehensive national security strategy to address threats to our country. We must ensure our service members have the resources they need to address the growing threats to our national security, such as Iran, Russia, China, and cybercriminals. We must ensure our men and women in uniform have the training, resources, and equipment needed to protect our nation. I have helped pass legislation to protect our nation here at home and abroad. I have also introduced legislation to hold Iran accountable and deter the Iranian regime from obtaining a nuclear weapon.
