Andy Schmookler Campaigns in Star City

Roanoke, VA - Dr. Andy Schmookler, the man challenging Congressman Bob Goodlatte for the 6th District seat, brought his campaign to the Star City Wednesday.

Schmookler says he is running against Goodlatte because he feels like Goodlatte is going along with a party that is going to destroy the country with their divisive politics and lies.

Schmookler, who graduated with top honors from Harvard, says his position is shaped by more than 50 years of research.

"Meanwhile our country is being moved more and more where the average American is losing power and losing wealth to those that already have the most power and the most wealth," he said.

Goodlatte's office didn't respond directly to Schmookler - only saying his campaign will continue to reach out to the people of the 6th District as he tries to win his 11th term.
