.@BernieSanders takes a deserved victory lap for his historic campaign with powerful call for unity. #DemsInPhillyElizabeth Warren: Donald Trump's worst nightmare. she's got his number and gets under his skin!Elizabeth Warren makes telling point about "selective gridlock". Only for issues that benefit the general good is the system frozen.Michelle Obama was simply magnificent. Powerful, poised, passionate, and persuasive.Great speech by @CoryBooker, an outstanding partner on infrastructure, animal welfare & marijuana reform. #DemsInPhillyAl Franken delivers devastating take down of Donald Trump, not so sure about leaving kids home so parents can campaign. Take them with you!!My friend and colleague, Luis Gutierrez on fire with speech before convention. Powerful and compelling.Please to stand with SEIU which represents far more than its members - immigration reform & workers rights. https://t.co/H7BfzBnhTXI can think of no one better to be DNC Chair than @donnabrazile. Onward, Madam Chair! @tinakotek shows OR leading the way with a progressive agenda. Great Job Madam Speaker! "I'm with her because she is with me"This movement is just the beginning & so very moving. #PlateOfTheUnion #DemsInPhilly https://t.co/laSMptk9IjChef @nicholaselmi, local Philly restaurateur & part of the national movement. #PlateOfTheUnion #DemsInPhilly https://t.co/dGCzBlLIbFOne of the most exciting parts of the Convention for me is #PlateOfTheUnion, supporting sustainable, healthy, eco-friendly ag. #DemsInPhillyNice to see a friendly Oregon face.

Can't you hear heads of fact checkers exploding as they consider Trump's surreal acceptance speech? I feel sorry for thoughtful republicans.

Boris #Brexit Johnson is a cautionary tale for Donald Trump and his Republican apologists.Sometimes the dog catches the mail lorry. Boris Johnson, sometimes being duplicitous catches up with you. Reality bites. #Brexit.@HouseGOP, Americans are tired of the daily tragedy of gun violence. They are taking their frustration and saying: #DisarmHate now.

Moments of silence are not enough. And, we won't stop fighting for action to #EndGunViolence.Proud to stand w/ my Senate colleagues who filibustered for action & my colleagues in the House who are saying "enough is enough."49 dead, many more injured. Lives shattered. And House does nothing & packs up bags for long weekend? It's shameful.

@SAM_Oregon Proud to lead national campaign against failed mj prohibition that doesn't protect kids, ruins lives & denies medicinal benefits @SAM_Oregon Over 32k dead from gun violence each year in US. ZERO dead from marijuana. Your comparison is delusional & shameful.Starting the ceremony swearing in new citizens abroad USCG Cutter Steadfast. Perfect morning at the waterfront. https://t.co/X18M2SzB1rWords cannot express my sorrow. Disgusted by this horrific act on the LGBT community & cowardice of those who won't pass sensible gun laws.

These proposals had no Committee action. If we had REAL hearings, GOP would learn from experts these proposals are good for economy & enviroPOTUS's proposed oil barrel fee would create jobs & economic growth & more than pay for itself. Today's House debate missed the point.GOP claims to support infrastructure. Instead of discussing real solutions for investment, GOP passes pointless resolution.Carbon tax would simplify tax code, drive investment for renewable energy & provide revenue to help solve other problems. #ActonClimateWhether or not GOP cares about climate change, a tax on carbon makes sense for US innovation, economy & competitiveness. #ActonClimate

Today's passage of our Mt Hood Cooper Spur Land Exchange Clarification Act may finally get critical land exchange done.12 yrs ago @repgregwalden & I hiked Mt Hood & crafted original idea for land exchange. 7 yrs ago it was signed into law. Still no exchange.Partnership to " balance responsibilities ...focuses on new ways to increase..renewable energy.
