Entry Title Date
Remembering Officers John Gibson And Jacob Chestnut July 24, 2014
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Mr. President, today I would like to begin by remembering two men to whom we owe so much: Officer J.J. Chestnut and Detective John Gibson. Exactly 16 years ago these Capitol policemen were shot in the line of duty, paying a terrible price in defense of every one of us--Senators, staffers, pages, fellow officers, and every American citizen who passes through these hallowed halls. These men knew the grave risk that came with the job. Yet they chose to wear the badge anyway. They made the decision to stand in defense of the democratic ideal this building symbolizes."
American Jobs July 24, 2014
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Mr. President, if Senate Democrats were half as concerned about American jobs as they are about saving their own jobs this November, there would be almost no limit to what we could accomplish. Yet, rather than work with us to get anything serious accomplished for our constituents, we see the majority leader once again bowing to the whims of his campaign consultants and the Senate becoming little more than a campaign studio this week."

Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Madam President, I ask unanimous consent that the quorum call be rescinded."
Nomination Of Pamela Harris To Be United States Circuit Judge For The Fourth Circuit—Continued July 24, 2014
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Madam President, yesterday Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel wrote to the majority leader seeking $225 million in additional U.S. funding for the production of Iron Dome components in Israel so they can maintain adequate stockpiles and defend their population. Republicans are united in support of our ally Israel. We have legislation that would allow Congress to meet the Secretary's request, and we hope our friends on the other side will join us in coming to a sensible, bipartisan solution that can be passed quickly."
Tribute To Jeremy Holbrook July 24, 2014
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
