6th Congressional District

Nick Gilmore / RADIO IQ

Virginia’s 5th and 6th Congressional Districts cover a massive portion of the state – stretching from northern Virginia all the way to the North Carolina line. They also each include a segment of Bedford County, where the two Republicans who hold those seats conducted a joint town hall meeting Wednesday night.

Virginia’s 6th Congressional District stretches from Roanoke and Lynchburg north into the Shenandoah Valley.  It has been represented by Republican Bob Goodlatte for more than 25 years.

But Goodlatte’s not running for reelection and Democrats see a window of opportunity starting with Tuesday’s primary.
