Webb discusses criminal justice reform, the economy, and national security at a meeting with New Hampshire business leaders on a trip to gauge backing for his potential presidential bid. When asked about his credentials:
I think we have some good stuff to bring to the table, and that’s what I want people to look at.
Webb says he has:
fought to take our broken criminal justice system into the national debate and out of the shadows.
On the economy:
This is a country where people want equality of opportunity and the result that their talents can bring. Those with assets and capital are doing well. Those without such things aren’t faring well, and the system must be right-sized.
He says he will decide “soon” whether to run or not.
