Candidates call for increased military spending

Posted: Updated:

The two remaining Republican candidates for U.S. Senate used Memorial Day to call for increased military funding.

David Perdue and Jack Kingston each tell FOX 5 strengthening our armed forces is a top priority, even if that means spending more money.

"I want to make sure that our service men and women never have to fight a fair fight. That they will always go into a battle, an engagement knowing who's going to win,” said Kingston.

Perdue also supports increased military spending, but says the national debt is a threat to national security and suggests a strong military needs a strong economy to support it.
