HARRISONBURG, Va.--- Republican candidate for attorney general Mark Obenshain addressed a room full of supporters on Friday about his main priorities, if he gets elected attorney general.

At the send off event, he said keeping communities safe across the Commonwealth. In addition, he wants to review the Affordable Care Act after the federal government releases its final regulations. He wants to make sure the regulations do not violate the law.

He said he has some concerns about the law because many Virginians have received insurance cancelation notices and rate increases.

Meanwhile, he hopes congress can address some of the problems with the law.

"I can't fix it. I hope that congress completely changes its direction. What I can do is stand up and fight as the final regulations come out," said Obenshain.

He said the regulations are expected to roll out at the end of this year or at the beginning of 2014.
