Blunt is Missouri’s junior senator, serving since 2011. He sits on the Appropriations; Commerce, Science and Transportation; Armed Services; and Rules and Administration committees.
The 2014 midterm elections were defined by a lot of issues — including the Democrats’ continued barrage of misleading attacks against Republicans’ policies and their impact on women. In Colorado, Iowa, North Carolina, North Dakota and elsewhere, Democrats spent millions of dollars attempting to mislead voters about Republicans’ policies — attacks that were ultimately unsuccessful when voters cast their ballots.
My name was included in some of these attacks, as some on the left tried to mislead voters about the amendment I introduced in 2012 to protect Americans’ religious freedoms. These religious freedoms, which Americans have enjoyed for more than 220 years, were ultimately upheld this year by the Supreme Court, when it reaffirmed that no one in this country should be forced to choose between giving up their business for their faith and giving up their faith for their business.
