#Thread: This is personal. I announced my candidacy in April of 2019. Less than a month later, my extended family suffered a tragedy of addiction. I found myself trying to find a detox bed for our loved one. I drove 8 hours in the middle of the night to be there.⬇️ I watched the sickness, the pain. We were able to find him help— after several days, & 100s of calls.

I watched as he looked at the paperwork & the cost 4 treatment. He looked at me, terrified. He couldn’t afford it. Our family couldn’t afford it. He had insurance. He was lucky.

.@realDonaldTrump and @EliseStefanik are wiping their asses with the constitution tonight.

I’m running in a Trump district. I know this isn’t going to be a poltically popular opinion or a winning issue, but this isn’t about left versus right.

This is about right versus wrong. Deploying the US military to police our streets is unconstitutional and unacceptable.

The past several days have shined a momentous spotlight on the inequity and injustice of this America.

We can not let this go unchallenged.

#Thread: After @EliseStefanik’s national meltdown many of you joined #TeamTedra, because you know that her partisan theatrics are bad for the country.

But today I want to tell you about the things Stefanik has done to hurt #NY21 families. Despite her campaign promises to improve #healthcare for Northern New Yorkers; @EliseStefanik voted to kick 64,000 of us (my family included) off their insurance.

She voted to gut protections for people with pre-existing conditions.

She voted to make RX drugs more expensive.
