Bishop Voted Against National Defense Authorization Act
Washington, DC — This morning, as the U.S. House voted to pass the National Defense Authorization Act, Rep. Dan Bishop voted no on the $886 billion defense policy bill that will support our military personnel and facilities, and keep Americans safe.
So what did Rep Bishop, who’s running for North Carolina Attorney General next year, vote no on?
- Dan Bishop voted against giving service members a 5.2% raise, the largest raise for service members in more than two decades.
- Dan Bishop voted against granting millions of dollars to Fort Liberty, one of the largest military installations in the world, located within Cumberland and Hoke counties in North Carolina.
- Dan Bishop voted against granting millions of dollars to Camp Lejeune, a military training facility in Jacksonville, North Carolina.
Statement from Emily Trifone, DAGA’s Deputy Communications Director:
“Dan Bishop put his extreme politics ahead of supporting North Carolina’s military families. He’s more focused on partisan politics than supporting the people who protect and serve our country.”
