A Rare Shot At An Open Seat Energizes Democrats In 6th District [Audio]

"For the first time since 1992, there’s no Republican incumbent running in the 6th Congressional District.  It’s an opportunity not lost on the four Democrats hoping to win their party’s nomination.

"Especially when Bob Goodlatte announced his retirement, I said 'This is it.  I’ve got to do this,'" says Jennifer Lewis.  She was already frustrated with the Trump administration when she decided to get in the race.

"People are tired of that feeling that the rich are getting richer.  That people in office get there and they forget what it’s like to come from where we  come from or  live the lives that we live," says Lewis, a mental health worker and Democratic organizer from Waynesboro."
