December 19 – First 100 Days Rules and Regulations Report

This week, my office released a report titled “First 100 Days: Rules, Regulations, and Executive Orders to Examine, Revoke, and Issue.” You can read the full edition, cover to cover, at the link below.

This report contains over 200 regulations — many of which were enacted under the Obama Administration — that have been devastating for working Americans. We are presenting this report to President-elect Trump and will work with his administration to roll these regulations back within the first 100 days of his term.

When the American people spoke on November 8, they provided conservatives with an opportunity to restore order in our government and to remove the out-of-control bureaucratic red tape that so often stunts the growth of otherwise successful Americans. My colleagues and I look forward to helping President-elect Trump in any way we can as we work toward the most productive ‘first 100 days’ in modern history.

This week I joined CNN Newsroom with Carol Costello to promote and discuss our “First 100 Days” rules and regulations report that we’re recommending to the Trump administration. It’s time we get our government off the backs of hard-working Americans and allow them to reach their full potential without the weight of crushing bureaucracy.

December 19 – Campaign Finance Reform Bill with Senator Ted Cruz

In case you missed it, my friend Senator Ted Cruz and I have introduced a bill to reform campaign finance laws and put Main Street Americans on a level playing field with Washington bureaucrats. This is a critical issue, and our bill would play a key role in reaffirming the principle of free speech in our political system.


December 19 – Joining the new Second Amendment Caucus

This week I was proud to become an inaugural member of the new Second Amendment Caucus, led by my friend Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY).

Our goal will be to take a leadership role in advancing policies that protect Americans against infringement of the Second Amendment — one of the most fundamental liberties in our country.




August 29 – Help for NC Voters

The one regret I’ve repeatedly heard from North Carolinians who have reached out to my office is that they simply wish they knew about the constituent services we offer sooner. All too often, people make endless phone calls to a federal agency that go nowhere, sometimes for months or even years. 

That is where my office comes in. We want to hear your story and help in any way we can. In many cases, my office can serve as your personal advocate by making the phones calls for you, cutting through the red tape and directly corresponding with the federal government on your behalf.

If you or a family member is having difficulty with any federal agency and you’re not receiving the answers you need, make sure the next call you make is to one of my offices, or visit my website at

August 19 – Security Situation in Israel

During the August work period, I spent a week in Israel to learn more about the nation’s security situation, the refugee crisis in the Middle East, the shared national security objectives between our two nations, and combatting the spread of radical Islamic terrorism. It was clear during the trip that in a region consumed by terrorism and oppression, Israel stands out as a shining beacon of hope and freedom.


December 2 – Sanctions Against Iran

Earlier this week, the Senate voted 99-0 to renew sanctions against Iran through 2026. Iran remains the number one state sponsor of terrorism, and we cannot allow this regime to grow stronger under President Obama. I will continue to hold Iran accountable for their threats against America and our allies.
