Andy Schmookler, the Democratic candidate for Congress in Virginia's 6th District, was in Harrisonburg Monday night, talking to voters.
Dozens of people came out to hear why he's running against Republican Congressman Bob Goodlatte.
Schmookler says he's on the complete opposite side of Goodlatte on almost all issues.
He says he's not a politician, but says he's tired of seeing people like Goodlatte not follow through on helping American people. That's why he says it's time for a change.
"And I'm tired of watching the lie defeat the truth and I think that Bob Goodlatte has aligned himself and willingly supported a very destructive and dishonest force that's taken over the Republican Party," said Schmookler.
Schmookler says he plans to visit several different places within Virginia's 6th District over the next few weeks to spread his message.
