Former 2nd District Republican Committee Chairmen Endorse Forbes for Congress

Date: April 2016


Virginia Beach, VA -- Today, three of the most influential former 2nd District Republican Committee Chairmen endorsed Congressman Randy Forbes as the best choice for Virginia's 2nd District. Under the leadership of these distinguished public servants, the 2nd Congressional District recaptured the Congressional Seat for the Republican Party and increased the number of Republican General Assembly Members in Richmond, which led to the Republican Party controlling both the House of Delegates and the Virginia Senate for the first time in decades. Here is what they are saying about Congressman Forbes:

Gordon Robertson, Former 2nd District Chair: "Randy Forbes is the same man of faith and of sterling integrity today that he was when I first met him over ​25​ years ago. His character and leadership are unparalleled, which is why he is hands down the best choice for the 2nd District and the person I trust to represent our region.”

Bruce Meyer, Former 2nd District Chair: "The 2nd District cannot afford to lose Randy's seniority and leadership on the powerful House Armed Services Committee, where he has proven to be a relentless defender of our men and women in uniform, our Virginia jobs, and our national security. We need Randy standing between Florida and our carriers. As a business owner, I know the loss of the thousands of jobs even one carrier supports would be devastating to our area, which is why I want Randy in Congress fighting on our behalf."


Dave Hummel, Former 2nd District Chair: "Randy Forbes is one of only 17 lawmakers to vote against every single government bailout under both Bush and Obama. I have known Randy since he first served and have always been impressed with his willingness to put the people first. We can have no stronger nor more trusted voice on behalf of our conservative values in Congress than Randy."

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 110 top executives from some of the region's most established employers, more than 30 well-known 2nd District elected officials, as well as some of the region's most influential grassroots, conservative, and Filipino-American leaders. Forbes also has received the endorsement 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.
