Gino believes that protecting the American dream means protecting America. The first charge of the Constitution is to protect our homeland and our way of life. A strong America deters our enemies, and weakness invites attacks. Strong national security means having a strong military and strong diplomacy that places America first.

Americans have endured a lot during the last twenty years since September 11, 2001. We can never forget that we face enemies overseas focused on killing Americans and replacing our rules-based system of international order with tyranny.

The Bennet-Biden withdrawal from Afghanistan was one of the biggest foreign policy embarrassments in the history of our country – and will make us less safe for generations. Senator Bennet fully embraced the Biden withdrawal strategy and called it “the right decision.” By supporting the botched withdrawal that led to the deaths of our brave service members, Michael Bennet has now joined Joe Biden on the wrong side of history. In this time of crisis, Senator Bennet refused to answer questions as the situation exploded.

The disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan has not only made us less safe here at home, but it has also caused significant friction with our allies and provided precarious new opportunities for countries like China and Russia.

The world is a safer place when we stand with allies such as NATO, Israel, and Australia. A weak America that is afraid to speak confidently to our adversaries like China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea creates more instability and potential for conflict across the globe.

The price for freedom is high. We all know brave Americans who have sacrificed to provide that freedom and security for our country – some of whom never returned home. In 1958, after immigrating to the United States, Gino’s father joined the United States military to defend our values and freedoms. Gino understands the sacrifice our veterans have made for our country. One of our greatest responsibilities is to honor veterans who return home by providing them with world class healthcare and a compassionate interest in their struggles. Gino will listen and lead to make sure veterans receive the benefits they deserve from our grateful nation.
