In Virginia’s 6th district, Ben Cline (R) is running against Jennifer Lewis (D).

The Republican candidate for Virginia’s 6th Congressional seat, Ben Cline, takes over for longtime Congressman Bob Goodlatte, who was the district’s representative since 1993. During the district convention in May, Cline received 52 percent of the first vote.

In June, Jennifer Lewis won the Democratic primary with 47.6 percent of the vote. Lewis calls health care “a human right and that it’s our moral obligation to create a nation in which nobody dies – or goes bankrupt.”

Both candidates spoke on the phone with the anchors of WFXR’s Good Day Virginia. Their interviews are attached to this article.
