Quote/top issue: "America is starting to come out of the worst recession in half a century. We must continue to pass legislation that gives businesses incentives to create jobs for Americans, purchase new equipment, and expand. I also work hard to keep our country safe, preserve the Chesapeake Bay, strengthen our education system, ensure seniors have access to affordable prescription drugs, take care of our active military personnel and veterans, and fund road and transit improvements."
