I joined Fox News this afternoon to discuss our upcoming votes on cabinet picks and the new administration. I am working to make sure we prioritize our energy and time in order to get things done. For me, that is focusing on millions of Americans living paycheck-to-paycheck. I am looking forward to working with the new administration on my Opportunity Agenda, which seeks to lift up those mired...

In U.S. Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee Republicans today, I questioned Congressman Tom Price, nominee to lead the Department of Health and Human Services, on federally qualified health centers, rural health care and access, and health disparities among African-Americans.

As I am also a member of the Senate Finance Committee, I will have another opportunity to discuss...

I was happy to introduce Governor Haley this morning before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. I am confident she will represent our country well and serve as an excellent Ambassador to the UN.

Letting former PFC Manning out 28 years early is absolutely unacceptable. The leaking of national secrets, which endangered lives, must be fully punished.

The first thing I noticed and admired about Betsy DeVos was her passion for education.

She has dedicated most of her career to helping at-risk students who are often trapped in under-performing schools.

I was a poor kid myself who grew up in a...

I had the honor of introducing Education Secretary nominee Betsy DeVos today during her confirmation hearing in Senate HELP Committee. She has consistently been an advocate for helping young people reach their full potential through education.

She is both pro-public school and pro-school choice. Parents and students could not ask for a better role model or more thoughtful leader to move the...

Education is the key to the American Dream, and the closest thing to magic. I know – I was that kid who once flunked out of high school as a freshman and drifted in the wrong direction. My education saved my life and ultimately got me where I am today.

Because I have seen firsthand what education for a kid losing hope can do, I am passionate about school choice and helping each child in this...

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. lived during a time of great turmoil in our nation. He worked everyday for equality, unity, and to provide a voice for the voiceless.

Nearly 50 years after his death, our nation once again sits at the crossroads between unity and division. The treatment endured by Dr. King while fighting for freedom, from a house bombing to his murder, shows us all the threats we...

Great conversation with Fox & Friends this morning. Without a question, Congressman John Lewis is an American hero, and Donald Trump is the legitimate president. It's very important for us to promote unity, not division.

Team Scott is ALL IN and excited for tonight’s championship game against Alabama Crimson Tide!

Led by Coach Swinney and Deshaun Watson, Clemson has had another amazing year. The good news – it’s about to get even better when they bring the National Championship home to Death Valley. Looking forward to also winning our friendly wager with Senator Richard Shelby, who will provide Preister’s...
