WAVY: Beau Biden visits Hampton Roads
PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) – Vice President Joe Biden’s son Beau was in Norfolk Thursday to kickoff a campaign event and spoke with 10 On Your Side about the military.
Biden is reaching out to the military at a time when Congress could have to make huge cuts to the defense budget. In addition to being the oldest son of Joe Biden, Beau Biden is a Major in the Delaware Army National Guard and the Attorney General of that state.
He is well aware of the challenges the Obama Administration is faced with when it comes to the defense budget, but says his father and the President already have a proven record when it comes to veterans affairs and the national defense.
“Obviously that’s very important here in the Commonwealth of Virginia,” Biden told WAVY.com “Important in other states where there’s a high demographic of veterans.”
That is why Biden has launched the Veterans and Military Families for Obama campaign in Hampton Roads. A town keeping a watchful eye on the defense budget, but according to Biden, a region where military families have benefited from the work of the Obama Administration.
“This administration and this president, this Commander in Chief has increased the veterans affairs budget and taken care of veterans’ benefits, increased it more than anyone has in 30 years.”
