September 29, 2015

WASHINGTON, DC - MARCH 01: Sen. Jim Webb (D-VA) holds a news conference to announce legislation to overhaul the federal government's planning, management, and oversight of wartime-support contracting at the U.S. Capitol March 1, 2012 in Washington, DC. Webb and co-sponsor Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) said they believe this is enough support in Congress to pass the legislation, which would build a greater system of accountability in military contracting.

Jim Webb went on air last night with Fox Radio host Alan Colmes for an extended segment. Starting by acknowledging he wears the "long-shot" badge in the race for the Democratic nomination, the former senator from Virginia got right down to electability.

"I have very strong confidence that if we get the nomination, we will win {the general election}."

Citing the deep history of polls at this stage being unable to predict election outcomes, Webb said, "When the hysteria dies down from all the verbal bombs that are being thrown back and forth, people are going to want to see that they will be able to elect a leader who has the track record and the vision to bring the country forward. That's what we're offering."
