"Hampton Roads doesn't just rely on a strong military -- a strong military relies on Hampton Roads," said Congressman Forbes. "Our region -- our home -- represents the intellectual and industrial front-lines of the national security of this country. It's here that we rebuild the Navy and equip those who fight to keep us safe with the resources they need to come home safe.
Ultimately the question is this: If your job is on the line, who do you want fighting for your job? If the bottom line of your business is on the line, who do you want fighting for that bottom line?

I believe in protecting and defending this nation. I believe in growing and sustaining the region I call home. That's why I am running for office, and that's why I'm asking for your vote on June 14."
Throughout the course of the debate, Congressman Forbes laid out a vision of fresh ideas for Hampton Road's future as the country's epicenter for national defense. This includes:
