Republican Senators Continue to Provide Results for Americans

Washington, D.C. –  While Senate Democrats derailed an essential coronavirus relief package they negotiated in good faith, Republican senators continue to pursue a substantive solution that will address Americans’ economic and health and safety concerns.

 

Senator Cory Gardner remains self-quarantined following interactions with a constituent who tested positive for coronavirus, but he’s still hard at work for Coloradans. Colorado’s Governor said he speaks with Gardner multiple times a day and that he’s been very helpful. Gardner also spoke with CBS Denver from quarantine about his effort to have the USDA waive service fees that Colorado ski areas typically pay to lease federal land.

 

 

Arizona’s Senator Martha McSally released a public service announcement urging Arizonans to do their part, stay home, and help flatten the curve.

 

 

Raleigh’s WRAL spoke with Senator Thom Tillis about his “work around the clock” to combat the coronavirus and provide immediate relief to North Carolina families. Tillis also celebrated the $13.8 million the CDC has sent to North Carolina to assist with the state and local response to coronavirus.

 

 

Senator Susan Collins has been leading bipartisan efforts to support small businesses hardest hit by the coronavirus. Senator Collins also released a new ad running in Maine encouraging Mainers to take extra precautions to protect themselves and their families, while also doing what they can to support local businesses and reach out to loved ones in need.

 

 

Senators Steve Daines and Mike Rounds have teamed up to help Montana and South Dakota ranchers who are struggling with the coronavirus outbreak amidst an ongoing cattle market crisis.

 

In addition to fighting for funding to combat the coronavirus, Senator Joni Ernst has urged Iowans, and all Americans, to reach out to loved ones and neighbors during these challenging times. Joni’s #MyCOVIDfive campaign has gone viral as Americans all across the country are sharing their different acts of kindness and what they are doing to reach out to those who need help.

 

 

Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue have been working to support Georgia farmers and small businesses that are facing troubling times during the coronavirus pandemic.

 

Atlanta’s 11Alive News reported Senator David Perdue shared an optimistic message with Georgians in a newly released public service announcement. Perdue closes the video to Georgians saying: “Remember this: we’re all in this together, and together, we can continue to lead by example and win in this crisis. Thank you and God bless.”
