We need a broader party. If we're not doing better with millennials and women and Hispanics, African Americans, Asian Americans and others, we will have a tough time being a majority party at the national level.

I believe it's wrong to say someone can't do his or her job because of their heritage.

I'm up here in Cleveland tonight and there are a lot of folks who are concerned about it. Twenty-five percent of the people up here get their health care through religious organizations and so that religious freedom issue is very important to them.

What I support is a whole different approach with regard to drug use, and that is spending less money on the prosecution and incarceration side and more money on prevention and education, which I know works.

Things are not getting better. They are getting worse. We need to elect Mitt Romney to turn things around.

You could have another downgrade. You could certainly have a stock market reaction that would be negative. And, I think nobody who looks at it objectively would want to happen.

Instead of focusing on growing jobs and reigniting our economy, President Obama focused on growing government and tried to remake the United States into the image of the debt-laden countries of Europe. His approach has been more spending, more regulation, and higher taxes.

It's not about sizzle for me. I think it's fine. I mean, America made a decision in 2008 to go with a president who did have sizzle.

As the crisis in Syria grows and the humanitarian tragedy becomes more clear, I appreciated Prime Minister Netanyahu's perspective on the changes and volatility in the region.

We need to do a much better job when people are addicted to take them through treatment and recovery.

I'm a religious liberty supporter - I strongly believe in that.

We have to ensure we are aggressively enforcing existing laws.

The tax code is now nine times longer than the Bible, and not nearly as interesting.

There is so much uncertainty out there, and the government in Washington doesn't seem to get it. What's needed is a new business environment.

I don't know what's going to happen specifically on votes on Obamacare. I suspect we'll vote to repeal early to put on record the fact that we Republicans think it's a bad policy, and we think it's hurting our constituents, and we think health care cost should be going down, not up.

We want more of our products going overseas, but the trick is to have a level playing field.

This past year has been very turbulent for the Middle East, and my conversation with Prime Minister Netanyahu strengthened my belief that we need to remain vigilant in our support of our critical ally.

What law enforcement will tell you is that in a terrorist act or even an act of people who are involved in crime, such as a drug gang, that they tend to get their weapons illegally.

If you focus on what people care about, you have ideas. And people are looking for solutions.

No one should discriminate.

I hope that the entire Senate votes to say that if you're on the terrorist watch list - not just the no-fly list, which is a much more targeted list, but the terrorist watch list - you should not be able to buy a weapon.

The broad goal, laid out by Congress, the Obama administration, and the U.N. Security Council, was that Iran would suspend all enrichment-related activities and not be permitted a path to ever pursue a nuclear weapons program.

Ohioans need peace of mind that the water coming out of their tap is safe. It's as simple as that.

No one in my family had ever been in politics. My dad thought it was something that got in the way.

Working together with Democrats and Republicans, I passed legislation to help break the grip of addiction. By investing in prevention, treatment, and recovery, empowering law enforcement, and stopping the overprescribing of painkillers, we can turn the tide.

If you can't even acknowledge that you have to fix Social Security, that's not a very good starting point.

Trump is going to be the change agent. Hillary Clinton is going to be the status quo. Bernie Sanders is not going to be in the mix.

I have acknowledged the problem and have spent my time in Congress focusing on solutions - including developing clean and efficient energy that grows our economy and creates jobs while also lowering pollution levels and protecting the environment.

I am disappointed that the President made the decision to have Ambassador Froman sign the TPP agreement in New Zealand.

We want more stuff stamped 'Made in America.'

Ohio chose the president in 2000 and 2004. The independent voters, the so-called swing voters, are the ones who make the difference.

I told my staff that I'm so boring that I didn't even know I was boring.

Having deinstitutionalized mental health, we have not created the structure and the institutions to take care of people, to identify when there is a mental health problem, and to get the treatment to people.

It's the wrong time for us to be pulling the rug out from under American exporters.

I'm on the Armed Services Committee, which gives me the opportunity to get involved on some of these international issues. My focus is, as you know, on the economic issues and budget issues.

This is his solution: He said all we need to do is take your tax dollars, send them to Washington, have Washington take out its cut, having Washington then send it back to the states, have the states then go out and hire public employees. Does that make sense to you? Is that how to get the economy moving?

I'm very happy where I am: I'm a senator from Ohio.

Out of college, I had two job offers. One was to be a canoe instructor for Outward Bound. And frankly, that would have paid better than the job I took, working on a policy commission in Washington that focused on immigration policy and refugees. But that decision made all the difference.

The Obama economy is great for rich people. It's terrible for everybody else.

My dad did everything he could. It was a start-up, and the banks didn't want to lend him enough money, so he mortgaged our house.

There has never been a campaign where there hasn't been sniping from the outside and second-guessing. I hear the same sometimes from the Democratic side in terms of President Obama's campaign, so that's to be expected.

I was fortunate, I guess, to be part of some good fiscal discipline in the Bush administration. The budget I put forward was a balanced budget.

The Social Security disability fund is going belly up in 2016.

President Obama likes to talk about the Buffett Rule. Well, here's a Buffett Rule that all Americans should be able to support: mom and pop businesses should not pay a higher tax rate than Fortune 500 corporations like Warren Buffett's.

Senator Brown and I have different philosophies as represented in our different ratings: I am a conservative, and he is a liberal.

Folks, do you agree with me that we cannot afford four more years of Barack Obama?

I'm not here today to tell you government doesn't have a role to play. It does, but it needs to be the right role.

Kyrie Irving could use a little help.

I served at a time when we had a strong economy, when we had deficits that we would die for today. I was able to propose a balanced budget, not over ten years, but over five years. I'm proud of that record.
