A Message from Senator Schumer

Dear Niagara County Democratic Committee Members,

And so it begins. This week, we started a new Senate session and, with it, a new chapter in our progressive fight.

Look, this wasn't the 2017 we had planned on -- not the Senate nor the White House -- but now is the time to look forward.

I'm looking forward to serving the people of New York -- their trust in me continues to be the honor of a lifetime. And I'm looking forward to leading a big, diverse family of Senate Democrats who come from across the country, from all walks of life, and with countless perspectives, to stand up for our values at this critical juncture in our country's history.

I'm especially proud to be working with the newest Senate Democrats -- Maggie Hassan, Tammy Duckworth, Catherine Cortez Masto, Kamala Harris, and Chris Van Hollen -- they are all extraordinary leaders and will be tremendous assets for our party for many years to come.

Make no mistake, we have a big job ahead of us. When the President-elect and his party appeals to the baser instincts that diminish America and its greatness, we'll fight them tooth and nail. From extreme cabinet picks, to Supreme Court nominees with views far outside of the mainstream, it's our job to hold them accountable -- and we'll do just that with every fiber of our being.

As the new Senate session got underway, I sat down with Rachel Maddow to talk about the work we have ahead of us. I hope you’ll take a minute to watch our conversation (the link is included below)!


Together, we will resist, we will fight, and we will get things done for the American people. And I'm proud to have you by my side for this fight.


Chuck Schumer
