The Virginia State Board of Elections has confirmed Libertarian Will Hammer as a candidate to face 6th District Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Roanoke, in November.
Hammer, 27, works at Rosetta Stone in Harrisonburg and lives in Staunton. He needed to turn in 1,000 signatures of registered voters in the district by last Tuesday to qualify.
“I will fight the two party system that has long been broken,” Hammer said in a press release. “The only special interest I have is for the people and their liberties. I want to work with people and make coalitions to advance issues that are affecting Americans.”
