Senator Cory Gardner Pushes to Militarize South China Sea

Center for Strategic & International Studies

 

Colorado Senator Cory Gardner, Chairman of the Subcommittee on East Asia, the Pacific, and International Cybersecurity, is introducing legislation to increase US military presence in the Indo-Pacific region, challenging the political dominance of China. Yesterday he announced his vision for the Asia Reassurance Initiative Act (ARIA) to the Seventh Annual Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS) South China Sea Conference. Raleigh Burleigh reports.

Raleigh Burleigh was raised in the historic floodplanes of Satank. The Carbondale Rotary Club sponsored him as a youth ambassador to Chile the year before his graduation from Roaring Fork High School. He studied International Affairs and Journalism at the University of Colorado, Boulder then applied those studies traveling throughout South America the following year. Returning to Carbondale thereafter, Raleigh acquired an internship with KDNK News which led to the opportunity to serve as News Director from 2017 to 2019. After another trip to South America in early 2019, Raleigh Burleigh drew deeper into the confluence as Program Director at KDNK. Raleigh now serves on KDNK's board of directors and as editor of Carbondale's weekly newspaper, The Sopris Sun.
