6th Congressional District: Goodlatte and Schmookler to meet in 3 debates

Three debates have been set up in the 6th Congressional District race between Republican incumbent Bob Goodlatte and Democratic challenger Andy Schmookler.

The debates have been strategically scheduled to cover the 6th District which runs from the northern counties of Shenandoah, Warren, and Page south to Roanoke City.

"These debates will provide voters with the opportunity to hear what I'm focusing on -- the economy, cutting government spending, and getting Americans back to work," said Goodlatte.

Goodlatte spoke with residents of the central Shenandoah Valley at the April SWAC (Staunton-Waynesboro-Augusta County) Political Breakfast in Waynesboro, and Schmookler was guest speaker at the SWAC Political Breakfast in March.

Here is the debate schedule:

Saturday, October 13 - 1:30 p.m. at James Breckinridge Middle School in Roanoke City. It will be hosted by the NAACP and the Williamson Road Area Business Association.

Monday, October 15 - 10:30 a.m. at Turner Ashby High School in Rockingham County.

Tuesday, October 16 - 7:30 p.m. at Liberty University in Lynchburg. It will be hosted by the Lynchburg Chamber of Commerce.
