Economy

Coastal Virginia is fortunate to have a thriving economy, and it’s my goal to keep it that way.

Education

Education is the foundation for success in our democracy. All students should have access to a quality education.

Energy

Coastal Virginia can be a national and global leader in our clean energy future. As a co-chair of the New Democratic Coalition Climate Change Task Force, I have laid out a bold vision for cutting greenhouse gas emissions while investing in the jobs and infrastructure of the future.

Environment

I am fighting to ensure all Americans breathe clean air and water and have access to pristine natural environments.

Gun Safety

As a former Navy Commander and now as a Member of Congress, I took an oath to protect this nation and its people, while simultaneously swearing to protect our Constitution. I believe that law-abiding citizens should be able to own guns, but commonsense measures are necessary to keep our communities safe from gun violence.

Health Care

I will continue to work to improve health care access and affordability and strengthen the ACA to ensure all Americans have access to affordable health coverage.

Infrastructure

Infrastructure is the backbone of Virginia’s Second Congressional District. Improving maritime infrastructure is essential for our community, which is home to one of the largest ports on the East Coast, the world’s largest naval base, and numerous other major military installations.

National Security

The United States has the finest military in the world, and it is critical to ensure the brave women and men who serve have the resources, support, and equipment they need.

Seniors

One of my top priorities is working to strengthen Medicare and Social Security. Hardworking seniors who paid into Social Security and Medicare deserve retirement security. I will continue to support measures that enhance the solvency of these critical federal programs.

Veterans

There is no higher priority to me than fighting for those who chose to serve their country in uniform. As a 20-year Navy veteran, I know firsthand the unique challenges and opportunities that our veterans face as they transition out of service.
