Levels of other global warming gases (methane and nitrous oxide) were the highest on record. In addition, 2017 was one of the hottest years on record since the 1800’s.

Our community has lost another young life to cancer. This is another loss to rhabdomyosarcoma identified in the Seacoast pediatric cancer cluster. The double cancer cluster in the Seacoast area consists of higher than expected rates of rhabdomyosarcoma and pleuropulmonary blastoma but also almost three times the expected rate for brain and central nervous system cancers in our children. This child is a member of our community. I have a son about the same age.

I received a call at approximately 1:15 pm today, August 3, 2018, from Senator Shaheen stating that she would be endorsing another candidate in the Democratic primary. It is unfortunate that the establishment party thinks it’s necessary to get involved in the middle of a democratic primary process. It seems that the party has not learned anything from 2016 which resulted in Donald Trump’s election to the presidency. This signals that the party thinks their insider candidate is not capable of winning on his own merits. His legislative record shows he never initiated a bill in four years and cosponsored two which were not passed.
On the same day that I get to Congress to represent NH CD-1, I will immediately sign up to join the newly formed House Medicare for All Caucus lead by Democratic Reps.

This is a central commitment of my campaign. There are already 122 House Representatives signed on as co-sponsors of Rep. Ellison's H.R. 676, the Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act.
