  • Keeping our nation safe by defending American values at home and abroad, strengthening our existing alliances and building new partnerships for the 21st century, and restoring American leadership around the world; and
  • Breaking down barriers for all Americans by ensuring every child has the opportunity to live up to their God-given potential, and passing comprehensive immigration reform, criminal justice reform, and other initiatives
