Former Governor Tim Kaine is running against former Republican Governor George Allen for the U.S. Senate.
Governor Kaine appeared on the campaign trail with President Obama in Charlottesville in late August, during which he said “Virginia will not go back, and the nation will not go back.” Bob asked him what Republican programs or policies he believes would do that.
Andy Schmookler is the Democratic challenger to 6th District Republican Congressman Bob Goodlatte in the November elections.
Virginia's 6th District covers all or part of Shenandoah, Rockingham, Highland, Augusta, Alleghany, Bath, Bedford, Rockbridge, Botetourt, Roanoke and Amherst Counties. Bob Leweke spoke with Mr. Schmookler, who began by describing why he is running.
