"I am honored to once again serve on the House Armed Services Committee. Colorado's Fifth Congressional District is one of our nation's premier defense communities. I look forward to continuing to advocate for our community and strengthen the already deep roots we have in the defense and space industries. Colorado Springs is the epicenter of our national security space enterprise, and it will continue to play a star role as the U.S. finally provides the resources and attention to space it deserves. We are also home to many Army and Air Force equities and units who deploy worldwide in support of our nation's key defense missions. I will keep fighting to ensure our military has all the resources they need in the 116th Congress"
