We must do everything we can to ensure service members, veterans and their families are cared for in return for their service to our country. Proper defense budgeting ensures our soldiers are best equipped to get the job done. Maintaining the readiness of our military also upholds our nation’s commitment to respond to security conflicts. Supporting South Jersey’s Joint Base McGuire–Dix–Lakehurst not only supports our national defense system, but employs 44,000 civilians and military personnel.
I also have a personal commitment to the unbreakable bond between the United States and Israel, our strongest ally and the only true democracy in the Middle East. I am proud to serve on the Armed Services Committee as I learn about and debate the foreign and domestic threats to our nation.

“Former FBI Director Comey is right – Russian interference of our democracy isn’t a Republican issue or Democratic issue, it’s an American issue. He was straightforward in discussing Russia’s malicious attempts to ‘shape the way we think, we vote, we act’– and that is terrifying. We must follow the facts and get to the bottom of this.
