Andy Barr ran for Congress for a cause – to save America from bankruptcy, restore the American Dream and keep the American people safe and secure. Andy has never stopped fighting for these principles. Now more than ever, it is critical for central and eastern Kentuckians to have a strong, proven, and accountable leader representing them in Congress.

It is absurd that an American company bans a sitting U.S. President from its platform but does nothing to the Ayatollah of Iran, who proclaims death to America or members of the Chinese Communist Party who constantly spread dangerous propaganda.
This country was built around the free exchange of ideas. Banning those with opposing political viewpoints puts our country directly on a path like China, where the Chinese Communist Party gives access to tech platforms only if you have the “acceptable” political views.
All Americans should be outraged at the hypocrisy of this ban and should be concerned at the precedent this will set. ... See MoreSee Less
I would suggest reading the Constitution. The Supreme Court has found that the First Amendment does not protect speakers against private individuals or organizations (ex. Twitter). The Supreme Court has also held these following restrictions on content. Short story: You cannot incite harm, sedition or treason.
Yes. Mr. Barr we are outraged by this. Please take a stand against what Nancy Pelosi is trying to further do to Pres. Trump with these crazy impeachment articles.
I am outraged that our elected officials have done nothing to reign in the threat of an authoritarian president who has incited his followers to attempt a coup based on lies fed to them by none other than our elected officials!
We are outraged. We are also disappointed and outraged in the Republicans who chose not to back the President.
All Republican Senators and House members should close all of their Twitter accts., if they haven't already. All Americans, especially Republicans should also. Even if you don't like the President, remember censorship is evil and Anti-American. Next it could be you!
I am outraged that they are going to impeach our President again. If anyone should be impeached it is Nancy Pelosi!! She and the Dems and news media have spent 4 years preaching hate!! I bet most of the people who voted for the Democrats have no idea how much good President Trump did for our country!! I live in Florida and will be calling my Senators Rubio and Scott. Also my representative Scotty Franklin.
This was not about “political views” this is about protecting people and our democracy.
He incited a riot. 5 people died, including a Capital policeman. Security was so lax that it’s only through luck that no legislators were hurt or killed. Twitter was right to shut him down.
"Well " Andy that is what the president was trying to get you to help him to prevent just a few weeks ago and you just ignored it,
I am outraged that the GOP is now led by tyrants. And they disregard the constitution, and show utter discontent for truth, justice and human life. There’s only one party of hypocrisy here and it’s the floundering GOP.
Remove the special protections that insulate them from the legal consequences that should have kept them in check all along. This is a failure of crony capitalism, pure and simple, and it should have never been allowed to happen.
This president has radicalized millions of people into his death cult. Your lack of courage and leadership is disappointing, but not surprising. Also, you must have missed that day in constitutional law but the first amendment doesn't guarantee speech on Twitter.
Saw where Czechoslovakia back in the days of Communism decided to divide and in the amiable divorce divided budget, debt, and military. We could do this and have the Democratic United States and the Republican United States and let the Supreme court decide laws and bills presented. Then everyone can be happy!
Doesn’t look very happy out here in the sixth district. It’s not only that the President was defeated by some algorithm programmed into a computer and dishonest politicians, it’s the perception out here in “everyday land” that politicians work for themselves and their fellow politicians, and have no idea of how to really fight. Why do republicans appear to cave or surrender their positions when confronted by Democrats or their media buddies? Do you really believe the Main Stream Media can influence the people of the sixth district? We despise them, and everything they represent; however, we want our representatives to be tough and loyal to the cause. You sir are in big trouble in central Kentucky right now for not backing President Trump this week. The incursion into the US Capital was appalling, but not promoted or sanctioned by the president. He did nothing wrong. You are not in a very respectable business right now. You need to learn how to fight these leftists.
So, if an Imam exhorted 40,000 followers to attack the U.S. capital to change the results of U.S. election whose result they disagreed with, and that Imam continued to urge his followers to change the results of the election without providing evidence, as well losing over 60 times in U.S. courts, you would be in favor of giving him a platform to continue to urge attacks against the U.S. government. Well, good for you, no one can call you a hypocrite.
I'm so glad that Kentuckian's reelection of a true Republican Conservative in Mr. Barr. The only reason McConnell was reelected was he was the Senate Majority Leader. I pray the Republican Party will have someone with backbone who'll stand up for the Conservative party in our next election. Someone who won't bowl and cowtail to the Democrats. Stand for true American constituents and expose to rid America of communist ideas. That's what silencing one party of this great nation is communism.
I am appalled and sickened at pelosi and Schumer’s etc and some republicans of the behavior toward our great president Trump! He has done so much for our nation in the last four years. I continue to support and appreciate Donald Trump.
I am outraged that YOU did not back our President and object to the certification of the electoral college votes.
The precedent has been set and the do nothing Congress allowed it. We’re as disappointed in the Republican Party, more so, than these woke platforms. The Republican Party is done for a long time. Do no more good than Democrats anyway and a majority agree with them. Talk, talk talk. Bleah! I hope Trump runs as an Independent in 24. If not, I’ll stay home.
I didn't hear YOU speak up against the fraud that has destroyed free elections. What's the matter now? Afraid you might lose your job? We the people are sick to death of the corruption and the cowardice of those that we send to represent us. Either make a stand or make room for someone who will.
Take a stand please and urge others to do the same! Every vote you received was a vote of confidence! Don’t let the voters down we have had enough of that!
It will be interesting to see if a new political party results from this with spewing out luke warm conservatives
Too late to care now. You already turned your back on us.....dont come trying to sympathize now. Where were you when Trump screamed this???
Please stand strong for us. I think you are a honest upright man. Your children and my grand children are going to live in a different America if the Republicans in office don't man up and fight against it. If you don't I think we are going to see many more occasions happen like what went on last week in D. C. I just hope you haven't waited to late. The Demon rats can do a lot of damage in 4 years. Pluse as long as we have mail in voting and dominion voting machines. There will be no Republicans on office.
Americans are outraged....we expected Congress to get to the bottom of the voter fraud allegations and we want Congress to uphold our Constitutional rights of Freedom of Speech. So far, Congress has failed.

The good news is that Republicans have officially flipped 14 seats in the U.S. House and have 213 members - just 5 short of taking the majority away from Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Of the 27 House races that the Cook Political Report rated as “toss-ups” in their election analysis, Republicans won all 27. Republicans also won seven of 36 seats that were rated “likely Democrat” or “lean Democrat.”
The bad news is that Speaker Pelosi is still the Speaker and instead of putting a bipartisan bill on the floor reauthorizing and expanding the Paycheck Protection Program, and streamlining the forgiveness process to help millions of Main Street small businesses in distress, and instead of addressing the economic crisis the country is facing, she is bringing the House back into session this week to vote on things like legalizing marijuana and banning private ownership of lions and tigers.
The Speaker’s decision to move forward with these trivial bills rather than working on critical assistance legislation to help small businesses and workers represents yet another total abdication of leadership and responsibility on her part. ... See MoreSee Less
I was a proud Andy Barr supporter. But, words cannot convey how utterly disappointed I was to hear you say that you didn't object to the certification of electors from the states where the greatest voter fraud took place! I applaud the courage of Hal Rogers for having the backbone to stand up for his constituents and object! The constitutional process was not allowed to take place. I now fear for our nation's future. You have lost my support. Unfollowing.
Pelosi isn’t for “we the people” ... she needs to be removed!
I hope you are helping my President Andy. This election was a fraud to we Americans.
Pelosi is not for the average American family she only governs to the elite. Her agenda is always and first about her and her needs. She is a disgrace to our country and when Biden takes office she will become more unstable and more empowered than she is now and that is a very scary thought.
I don't like Nancy Pelosi. However ending prohibition on marijuana should have happened a long time ago. It is a plant. If you have read the Bible and believe it is true, in the 1st seven days it was all good.
Thank you for this update. Hopefully there are a few moderate, traditionally-leaning Democrats there with the courage to vote for the good of their constituency instead of their Speaker. After all, it won't take as many this year as before (a fact worth noticing, right?).
We need for all of you republicans in congress to stand up for Trump. Do not concede!!!
Huge wins for the republicans but yet the president lost to Biden?!! There is no way I believe that!!
Where were you in standing with the president and his 70 million voters whose 1st amendment rights were violated by all the fraud they used to put Biden in office. The democrats fought and argued that Trump was elected by fraud that it turned out they made up. Why aren't you showing the same passion to stop the fraud, proven fraud with sworn affidavits that you allowed the democrats to get away with. Seems you must be part of the swamp!
They are trying to wipe out as many small businesses as possible because they know they aren't able to control and influence them as much as they can a big corporation. They need businesses that will comply with their guidelines.
Her time as the Speaker is limited in several ways. One being her age. Hopefully, the Senate can control the damage that Biden tries to inflict on the country.
There was a red wave this election, we are tired of the corrupt Democrats and their destruction and fraud, they belong in prison
Anyone putting the private ownership of lions and tigers and legalizing marijuana above getting emergency help to our people and small businesses has a serious mental issue.
I'm disappointed that you didn't object to the certification. We feel like no one is listening to us.
We voted in all of these Republicans & then to be so stupid to vote in a Democrat for President that statement does not make sense We also voted in a Republican President too ...
Why is the Legislature not voting her out?
Pelosi is a nut with no human compassion for the people of America! She has stolen everything from the government and the American people. She should be questioned before America and kicked out of the government! She’s greedy and has no respect for this country or anyone!
Where's that fabled customer service of yours? Restaurants in the 6th are going bust. Tell Mitch to get off his butt and help.
So do you acknowledge that election results are official and final? The leader of the Republican Party is still claiming massive fraud. Where do you stand?
If we legalize pot, people will be just fine with being broke, unemployed, and sleeping on someone else's couch with no prospects for things to get better. It's all cool, man. Just chill. So it really is a pandemic response bill. It's a lot easier and cheaper to drug the masses than it is to actually fix all damage done by these shutdowns.
Andy Barr, why didn’t I see your name on the list of 106 representatives filing an Amicus brief in support of the Texas v. Pennsylvania case? I have faithfully voted for you, donated to you and supported you. If you fail to support Kentuckians and our president, you can kiss my support goodbye and find another job.
The legalization of marijuana is hardly trivial.
actually no. democrats still have control of house. 222 to 209
I so wish that Pelosi was removed
Why, how did she get speaker again. God help this government get its head on right. Good grief
I believe that the United States of America is the greatest nation in the history of the world. That belief is rooted in an understanding that the founding fathers were right: that we are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights, that it is the responsibility of government to protect those rights and that the ends of liberty and human progress are best served when government is limited and its powers dispersed.
