Washington, D.C. – From the cost of gasoline to your electric bill each month, energy prices have been increasing since Joe Biden took office. On his first day in the White House, he canceled the Keystone pipeline and banned new oil production, all to appease woke climate fanatics.
Now, the White House is trying to rewrite history by blaming Biden’s record high gas prices on the “Putin Price Hike”–but Tennesseans aren’t buying their spin.
Let’s challenge big government to get out of the way and empower the private sector to produce more oil, more gas, more electricity. It’s time for an Operation Warp Speed to make America energy independent again!
If left unchecked, communist China’s Digital Yuan and other emerging technologies will empower Russia to evade global sanctions on important financial systems like SWIFT and enable the CCP to further surveil and threaten their citizens.

In February, severe winter storms in West Tennessee caused severe power outages, blocked roads, and loss of life.

From Beale Street in Memphis, to Music Row in Nashville, to the theaters tucked into the mountains of East Tennessee, our artist communities make Tennessee an exceptionally creative state. In Congress, I’ve led the bipartisan fight to protect creative IP and make sure our singer-songwriters are properly compensated for their hard work and talent. Fighting for our creative community will help ensure the hits keep on coming!
I sponsored a resolution condemning the recent bomb threats at HBCUs and reaffirming our commitment to combatting violence against students, faculty, and staff.
