On Tuesday afternoon, Representative Bob Goodlatte of Roanoke and Delegate Dickie Bell of Staunton gathered with a reporter, staff, and the general public inside the city council chambers in Staunton. Although I was unaware beforehand, the primary purpose of this meeting was to announce Goodlatte’s endorsement of Bell. Delegate Bell faces a Democratic challenger in the November 2011 election. This fact is a tad unusual for this area as no other General Assembly race in the Shenandoah Valley is contested.
Besides the endorsement, Representative Goodlatte also offers a few thoughts regarding future developments and plans for the federal government.
Unfortunately, the video cuts off abruptly when the camera runs out of power. When a camera displays half a charge remaining, you would expect it to last longer than five minutes.
Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy.
