Sending in my ballot for @MiaBonta for State Assembly in AD-18!
Second election I’ve ever voted in. Make sure you vote by August 31st, and vote for the candidate who will be a champion for the East Bay and all of California, the one and only Mia Bonta!
To everyone saying the current situation in Afghanistan would’ve never happened under Trump: you are correct.
Trump didn’t have what it takes to pull out US troops. Biden did — and was willing to take the hit.
So no, Trump and Biden are not the same.
There was never going to have been a “right moment” for US troops to pull out of Afghanistan. This is about ending an endless war.
We must ensure every American gets home safely, while also making sure we are providing support for Afghan refugees to safely relocate.
30 DAYS until Election Day.
30 days to get out the vote.
30 days to make sure Californians know what’s at stake on September 14th.
Register. Fill out your ballot. Tell your friends and family to do the same.
Vote NO by September 14th and reject this Republican led recall.
California’s Governor Recall Election is yet another attempt at a power grab by Republicans.
But their efforts will not prevail — not here, not during this moment. Make a plan to vote by September 14th to put a stop to this baseless attack on our progressive values.

Tomorrow is the 100 year anniversary of the discovery of insulin.
In 1921, insulin’s discoverers sold its patent for $1 so insulin would be affordable to all.
Today, a single vial of insulin that lasts me about a week is priced at $300+, only in the United States.
What an amazing day in #AD18! I got to attend two events with the one and only @BLeeForCongress (who is celebrating her Birthday!) and our canvassing squad was joined by Eugene Canson (a former Primary opponent, but now on #teamMia.)
I was inside Mexicue tonight when this happened. I am safe. But I thought I was going to die. It was the scariest moment of my life. Every day people feel the way I did, texting my parents that I love them. I’ve never been angrier at my country for allowing this shit to go on. twitter.com/igorbobic/stat…
Everyone deserves access to higher education.
There’s NO reason why students should have to bare the burden of tuition raised EVERY year — in the richest state, in the richest country.
The UC’s ‘Forever Hike’ makes (already) unaffordable education, even more so. #ForeverHike
Pacific Gas & Electric says its equipment may have been involved in the start of a fire burning in California. PG&E told state regulators about its connection to a fire that has grown to 29 square miles, largely in remote wilderness in the Sierra Nevada.
They were abducted from their families. Had their hair cut off. Were forbidden to speak their language, and then were expected to smile for a photo op? Boarding school Indigenous angels had absolutely nothing to smile about—my heart is heavy today.
BREAKING: At least 4 people were wounded in a shooting during a @Nationals game outside Nationals Park in DC.
Gun violence shouldn’t be as American as baseball.
Yet Americans kill each other with guns at 25x the rate of peer countries. We must urgently address this epidemic. twitter.com/danawbrz/statu…
14th Amendment, Section 3, prohibits lawmakers who have engaged in acts of insurrection against the United States from being in office.
Lauren, stop tweeting non-sense. Your days are numbered. twitter.com/laurenboebert/…
Maybe it’s just me, but the next time our government is trying to make a multi-billion dollar investment, I think it should go to affordable housing, free college, transforming public safety, Medicare for All, and the Green New Deal, not to billionaires trying to go to space.
Tell ‘em loud and proud girl! GOP will strip your unemployment protections and dismantle any semblance of a public safety net we have left! Then make working people pay way more for everything on low wages while Wall St gets a meal ticket!
Good ol conservative values baby! 🤑twitter.com/Acyn/status/14…C

NEW: We're releasing statewide data on gun sales in 2020.
In CA, we have strong, commonsense gun laws–but some aren’t being used enough.
With the increase in firearms, I'm partnering w/@bradybuzz to urge Californians to utilize our state's red flag laws. oag.ca.gov/news/press-rel…
Huge congratulations on the strong lead in the primary @MiaBonta! Now we continue the work till August, so you can continue fighting for the East Bay at the Capitol, especially the young people in our district.
