RICHMOND, Va. (WAVY) — Rep. Bob Goodlatte has easily won the Republican nomination for a 12th term in Congress over a little-known challenger in rural western Virginia's 6th District.
Goodlatte had 66 percent of the vote over newcomer Karen Kwiatkowski in Tuesday's GOP primary. He faces Democratic newcomer Andy Schmookler in the heavily conservative district in November.
Schmookler is an author, consultant and college professor.
Kwiatkowski is a retired Air Force colonel who lives in Shenandoah County.
