“When I first came to the Senate, I saw working groups and caucuses representing every branch of our Armed Services – but no such organized support for the men and women who serve our country abroad in the Foreign Service.

They are posted to more than 270 embassies, consulates and other missions around the globe in often difficult and dangerous environments, and their contributions to the advancement of democracy, the rule of law and American security should be bolstered here in the Senate. I look forward to working with Senator Van Hollen on ways we can support this outstanding group of Americans abroad.”

Senator Sullivan co founded the Senate Foreign Service Caucus with Senator Chris Van Hollen.
