Erik Fleming on Homeland Security

Democratic Senate Challenger


No base closings in US, but close bases overseas

I believe in a strong national defense, so I will oppose any base closings in Mississippi or any other state. I believe with our increased ability to deploy troops and weapons, we should consider closing overseas military operations bases instead and create new multilateral defense treaties that would allow American troops to be stationed at foreign bases to maintain a presence at a streamlined cost to the Department of Defense.

Yes.
