Yesterday, President Trump signed into law my resolution repealing one of the worst regulations from Obama's war on coal. I am proud to work with the president to deliver for Kentucky's coal miners. With a pro-coal partner in the White House, we will continue to repeal Obama's regulations to bring relief and create jobs in our state.
I applaud President Trump's decision to nominate Judge Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court. Judge Gorsuch is a principled jurist and is exceptionally qualified to fill the seat of Justice Scalia. With the November election now behind us, I invite the Senate Democrats to respect the will of the American people and grant the new president’s nominee fair consideration and an up-or-down vote — just...

Hillary Clinton is running for President Obama's third term and her Democratic allies are promising that if elected they will continue the same failed liberal policies of the last 8 years. That is why I am doing everything I can to ensure we elect conservative Republicans all across the country this November. Will you join me by signing my Republican Voter Pledge?


I hope you'll join me to help #FlipTheHouse and turn Kentucky red this November!
