For too long, the American people have deserved better from their elected leaders in Congress. The outgoing leadership spent too much and did not listen to the very same people who they were supposed to represent. On Tuesday, millions of American voices were heard loud and clear and they do not like the direction this country is headed in.
For the past two years I read your letters and emails, listened to your phone calls and spoke to thousands of you in person. I want you to know that my focus will continue to reflect your priorities. You have asked for the new Congress to cut spending, create jobs, extend the tax cuts and defend the border. Your voices will no longer fall on deaf ears.
I am humbled by your support I will never underestimate the importance of representing you in the United States Congress. I will work tirelessly with my colleagues to bring common sense back to Washington.
