My dear friend Tim Mitchell was an institution. As a trusted aide in the United States Senate, he -- and his sidekick Gary Myrick -- was as essential to me as one of my fellow Senate colleagues. He helped make the Senate function appropriately, and he was integral in helping us pass many pieces of legislation. He was fair and was never pushed around. I will always remember all the good he did...

After working for decades to protect Gold Butte’s breathtaking landscapes and cultural treasures, I was overjoyed to hear the news from President Obama. The splendor of Gold Butte will now be protected for all of us. It will be enjoyed for generations to come.

President Obama is a courageous man. I could not be more grateful to him and his team for working with me to make this happen, and...

As I have said before, Donald Trump's calculated decision to appeal to the worst side of human nature led to him running a campaign based on hatred and fear. This type of neofascism has long resided on the fringes of world politics, but it never had a serious following in America. Donald Trump changed all that. I have called on Trump to reject hatred and tell his supporters that every person...

Yesterday, I was joined by BLM Director Neil Kornze, LACMA Director Michael Govan, and genius artist Michael Heizer for the signing of a conservation easement to protect the area containing Heizer’s grand modern art sculpture, City.

The signing of the easement is the first step in allowing public access to the sculpture and its full incorporation into Basin and Range National Monument – a...

The Army Corps of Engineers’ decision to reroute the Dakota Access oil Pipeline is a victory for the Standing Rock Sioux, who have been objecting to construction of this pipeline for more than two years. This is a momentous step toward correcting the course of a disgraceful history.

Yesterday’s decision will not make up for the past, but President Obama took a huge step to rectify a terrible...

The UNLV students who operate the school newspaper made the bold decision to change the name of their publication. To say I am proud of these students would be a huge understatement. This name change wasn’t easy. But these students were more interested in unifying the student body and rejecting hateful symbols of a racist and divisive past, rather than hiding behind tradition. Now it’s time...

I’ve called upon our President-elect to rise to the dignity of his office. I called upon Donald Trump to take responsibility for his rhetoric and his actions, to work to heal the wounds that he created. Our President-elect has chosen to do none of those things. Meanwhile, vile acts of hate and intimidation continue to occur all across America.

On Tuesday, I said that the Southern Poverty...

There were a number of bright spots on Election Day, but I have to say without any question the one for us was in Nevada. The Koch brothers came to the state and publicly said: “Reid has been hard on us and we're going to teach him a lesson.” In spite of all their untold wealth, they could not affect what we had built up over the years in Nevada.

Election Day was really a good day for our...

I have been in politics for five decades, and I have never seen anything like what we are seeing today. A man who lost the popular vote by more than two million votes is now the President-elect, and his election has sparked a wave of hate crimes across America.

We have a responsibility to be the voice of the millions of Americans sitting at home, afraid that they are unwelcome in Donald...
