Candidate Profile: Virginia Fifth District Democratic Congressional Candidate RD Huffstetler


FIFTH DISTRICT, Va. (WFXR) — Democratic candidate Roger Dean Huffstetler emphasizes the need for expanding affordable healthcare and increasing housing assistance to the rural communities in the 5th congressional district.

“There was a time in my life, when, were it not for the Section 515 program administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, my mom, my sister, and I would not have a roof over our heads,” he says.

Huffstetler plans to extend the Fair Housing Act and increase funding of USDA programs to help rural families in the district meet their housing needs.

He also stresses the importance of protecting and expanding access to affordable healthcare by introducing a public option and reinstating the individual mandate of the Affordable Care Act.
