National Security, Military & Veterans
I will use my national security background and expertise to be a voice for a strong, responsible and strategic national security operation that balances defense, diplomacy and development.
Veterans that have served our country deserve every opportunity to succeed, that means a strong VA with world-class medical care and wrap-around services that are efficient and effective. It also means recognizing military credentials in the civilian workforce, strengthening GI educational benefits, ending veteran homelessness and supporting veteran-owned small businesses. There are no more reliable and trustworthy worker than our veterans.
Protecting Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst
I will be a champion for Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, which is the second-largest employer in the state, providing more than 100,000 local jobs and supporting $7 billion in economic activity in the region.
