Sen. Jason Pizzo- Working hard and doing well is an American axiom, but if you’re in public office to enrich yourself, instead of improving the lives of your constituents, stay out of public office. It’s really not that difficult.

Ron DeSantis-Happy 14 years of marriage to my beautiful wife @CaseyDeSantis. I am so blessed to have you by my side. You are an incredible wife, mother, and First Lady. I love you!

Marc Caputo-“Bidenmobiles:” electric cars become new culture war vehicle in the presidential race

China and trade; class and union labor; urban and rural divides; free market vs. government intervention; nostalgia for a bygone era vs. the promise of a new future

Kat Cammack-On National Law Enforcement Suicide Awareness Day, let's support our brave officers and work to ensure that they have the resources they need. Their jobs come with incredible challenges, and the mental health of our men and women in blue must always be a priority.

Bryan Griffin-This is a flat-out lie from @KariLake

and she should be ashamed to say it.

When it was least popular, and often while standing alone, @RonDeSantis

did the things she's only now chirping about supporting.

He never mandated masks or vaccines. He took the heat to lead the nation in opening up, getting kids back in school, and legislatively prohibiting these abuses from ever happening in his state again.
