Virginia Beach, VA -- Today, Congressman Forbes announced that some of the most well-known leaders from the Jewish community in the Second District have endorsed Randy's leadership as the best choice for Hampton Roads, for national security, and for the U.S.-Israel alliance. The impressive list of distinguished Jewish community leaders who have come out in force to back Congressman Forbes' campaign include well-respected business leaders and influential community activists from across the Second District.

Here is what these key leaders are saying about Congressman Forbes:

Art and Annie Sandler: "The U.S.-Israel alliance has no better friend or champion than Congressman Randy Forbes. He has earned our respect and loyalty. We need him in the Congress."

Jordan E. Slone: "Congressman Forbes is uniquely qualified and has the experience to serve our nation, Virginia, and our men and women in uniform. Additionally, his election is in the best interest of the U.S.-Israel relationship."

David and Bonnie Brand: "Congressman Randy Forbes holds a vital and unique perspective in looking over the horizon at the threats facing the free world. He has the knowledge and commitment to make the choices necessary in the defense of our nation's safety and that of our allies. Forbes has stood proudly in support of strengthening the U.S.-Israel relationship and understands clearly the vital role that relationship plays in the security of America and the world. We are proud to stand with him and strongly endorse his re-election to the U.S. Congress."

Ron Kramer:
"Randy understands and fully supports the importance of the U.S.-Israel relationship and is able to act on his belief with his service on the Armed Services Committee. He is a true friend of Israel."

Karen Lombart: "As Chairman of the House Armed Services' Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee, Congressman Forbes has demonstrated passion, steadfast commitment, intention, clarity, insight, and foresight in his work advocating for our nation's strong national defense. Using his breadth of knowledge and depth of experience as an unwavering voice in Congress, I feel safer as an American in a world where terrorism is an ever present threat. It is absolutely a necessity that he remains a participant in our national conversation and a Representative from Virginia."

Bobby Copeland: "Congressman Forbes has become a resource to his fellow associates especially in matters related to Armed Services. His thorough understanding of the military and terrorist activity especially in the Middle East provides the leadership for others to follow -- truly sound judgement."

Jerry Miller: "Randy has consistently been a true friend to the State of Israel and a staunch supporter of a strong U.S.-Israel relationship. Randy is one of the most knowledgeable members of Congress as it relates to national defense and the importance of the strategic partnerships between the U.S. and Israel."

Jeff Brooke: "I support Randy Forbes because he has the experience, seniority, and world view to properly represent our district."

Congressman Randy Forbes is one of the most senior members of the House Armed Services Committee and serves as Chairman of the Subcommittee overseeing key Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force programs that represent a major lifeblood of the Hampton Roads economy. He is nationally recognized as a champion of the U.S.-Israel alliance. Having met personally with Prime Minister Netanyahu multiple times, Forbes has served as an outspoken advocate for Israel's right to self-defense and strongly opposed the President's dangerous nuclear deal with Iran.

Forbes has already been endorsed by over 120 top executives and business leaders from some of the region's most established employers, over 40 Second District elected officials, as well as some of the region's most influential grassroots, conservative, and Filipino-American leaders. Forbes has also received the endorsements of 7 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.
