Election Day 2012 is more than a year and a half away, and while the choices in the presidential race are still unknown, one person has already announced he'll challenge Congressman Bob Goodlatte for his seat.

Dr. Andrew Bard Schmookler announced Tuesday that he's running, as a democrat. He says America is stalled because both political parties have not learned to work together.

"I have a message about the failure of both parties, to deal with this crisis appropriately. A destructive force on the republican side, and a ineffectual weak force on the democratic side," says Schmookler.

Goodlatte refused to comment on Schmookler's announcement, saying the election is too far away to start responding to potential challengers. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
