About Our Guest

Jack Reed is a champion for middle-class families and a strong believer that all Americans should have the opportunity to build a better life.

Jack was born and raised in Cranston and grew up on Pontiac Avenue. His father was a school custodian who served in the U.S. Navy during World War II, and his mother was a homemaker.

After retiring from active duty, teaching at West Point, working at a law firm, and serving at several levels of government, the people of Rhode Island elected Reed in 1996 to succeed Claiborne Pell (D-RI) as Rhode Island's 46th U.S. Senator; and re-elected him in 2002, 2008, 2014, and 2020.

Senator Reed works hard every day to help make the federal government more efficient, effective, and responsive to the people of Rhode Island.  He has a proven record of working on a bipartisan basis to help solve problems and achieve results.  Senator Reed was part of the bipartisan working group that drafted the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act and successfully led efforts to create the $150 billion Coronavirus Relief Fund to help states combat COVID-19.  Senator Reed also helped include a $1.25 billion small state minimum to ensure Rhode Island could effectively respond to the pandemic and he successfully fought to include an additional $1.67 billion in flexible funds for Rhode Island’s state and local governments in the American Rescue Plan law.
