Anti-Pipeline Activist Poised to Enter Congressional race

"A third Democratic candidate has her eye on Bob Goodlatte's congressional seat in this year's election.

Jennifer Lewis is set to join Democrats Sergio Coppola and Peter Volosin in a run for the 6th District seat. She’s expected to announce that she’s running on Friday, February 9.

Lewis is president and founder of Friends of Augusta, which is an anti-Atlantic Coast Pipeline group.

“As much as I love being a grassroots organizer and an activist - which I’ll always be at heart – it’s time for me to take that passion and energy to the next level to really affect the change,” says Lewis.

Back in November, Goodlatte said he would not seek re-election. Eight Republicans are also running for the vacant seat."
