Webb Campaign Press Release - Democratic Candidate for President Visits Oahu
HONOLULU —Candidates for president don't often campaign in the islands. Former Virginia Senator Jim Webb, a Democrat, may be the only one this election cycle. Webb is visiting Oahu to receive the American Patriot Award from the Navy League and to outline his presidential platform. He touts himself as a steady ship in the sea of uncertainty that is the 2016 presidential field. He summed up the reason he believes he's the right candidate for the job:
"Experienced leadership that you can trust and someone that keeps his word."
Webb gave a speech on national security and foreign policy at the Jade Dynasty restaurant in the Ala Moana Center Sunday night. Webb says his time as a Marine gives him extra pause before committing U.S. military forces. When asked about the threat of ISIS, he urged a measured response.
