Congratulations to Ya Liu, Cary Town Councilwoman and Maria Cervania as they make history being sworn in as the first Asian American women to serve in the North Carolina General Assembly. I wish them both best of luck as they enter this new phase of public service.
Two years ago today marked one of the darkest days of our history. On January 6th, right-wing insurrectionists — incited by the former President — violently attempted to prevent a peaceful transfer of power.

I will always fight to protect and defend our democracy.
