As a member of both the Senate Armed Services Committee and the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee (HSGAC), Claire believes in a cohesive and thoughtful approach to the security of our nation and supporting the mission of our men and women in uniform. Now more than ever, Claire believes American leadership in the world is critical to helping ensure peace, democracy and human rights. This is particularly true in the face of complex challenges in fighting terrorism and transnational threats, ensuring success in Iraq and Afghanistan and crafting a strong, forward-leaning foreign policy.
At the same time, we can never lose sight of protecting the homeland as our very first priority. Claire remains committed to making sure our country is safe, whether that be defending against weapons of mass destruction, fighting for a robust missile defense, or ensuring our first responders have what they need to protect our communities.
