– Sheldon Whitehouse is seeking a third term in the U.S. Senate to keep
fighting for Rhode Islanders in Washington.
“With President Trump in the White House, we’re in the middle of
battles in Washington that will have enormous consequences for Rhode Island,”
said Whitehouse. “Protecting the decades of progress we've made on civil
rights and voting access depends on electing Democrats who will vet judicial
nominees and serve as a check on the President’s worst impulses. I am
committed to doing everything in my power to defend the middle class from
attempts by President Trump and Republicans in Congress to gut Social Security,
Medicare, and protections for people with preexisting conditions.
“I've also led bipartisan efforts in the Senate to reform our
broken criminal justice system, prevent addiction and promote recovery, and
improve our public schools. If we can reclaim the majority in November,
Senate Democrats have plans for a nationwide job-creating infrastructure
investment, improvements to our health care system that will lower costs while
raising the quality of care, help for students struggling under massive college
loans, and common sense gun safety measures.
“With investigative and legislative gavels in Democrat hands we
can and will stand up for minority rights and against overt and dog-whistle
"It is the great honor of my life to represent the Ocean
State in the Senate. I look forward to
spending the months ahead talking with Rhode Islanders about our work to grow
the middle class, protect health care, and leave our planet a better place for
the next generation."
