I am proud to be part of the Climate Solutions Caucus to further expand my knowledge on the potential impacts of climate change and find bi-partisan solutions.

    We need to defeat ISIS with assertive leadership, our superior airpower, and special forces Iraq and other regional partners should be the lead with ground forces. Our regional partners will do this with strong American leadership, and leading from behind will not get the job done.
