Virginia Beach, VA -- According to reports filed with the Federal Election Commission for the first quarter of 2016, Congressman Randy Forbes raised an impressive $360,000 -- three and a half times more than the next closest candidate. Even more telling of the strength of Forbes' candidacy is the $875,000 cash on hand his campaign reported -- more than $800,000 above what the other two candidates have combined. Congressman Forbes' campaign reported no debt.
"The contrast in these campaign finance reports serves as a resounding confirmation of just how strongly the Second District stands behind Congressman Forbes," said Hailey Sadler, Forbes' spokesperson. "Forbes' leadership as Chairman for the House Armed Services Seapower Subcommittee holds enormous value for this region, and Second District voters recognize that local seniority is critical to supporting our men and women in uniform and growing our region's jobs."Born and raised in Hampton Roads, Congressman Forbes serves as Chairman of the House Armed Services Subcommittee overseeing key Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps programs critical to Hampton Roads. He has already been endorsed by over 120 top executives from some of the region's most established employers, over 40 well-known 2nd District elected officials, as well as some of the region's most influential grassroots, conservative, and Filipino-American leaders. Forbes has also received the endorsement of seven Secretaries of the Navy, including former U.S. Senator John Warner of Virginia, who served as Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, as well as Secretary of the Navy.
