Virginia's sixth congressional district is a United States congressional district in the Commonwealth of Virginia. It covers much of the west-central portion of the state, including Roanoke, Lynchburg and most of the Shenandoah Valley. Due to recent redistricting, the district now covers all or part of Warren, Shenandoah, Page, Rockingham, Highland, Augusta, Bath, Bedford, Rockbridge, Botetourt, Roanoke, and Amherst Counties as well as the cities of Harrisonburg, Staunton, Waynesboro, Lexington, Buena Vista, Lynchburg, and Roanoke. The current representative is Bob Goodlatte, who has held the seat since 1993. Businessman Sam Rasoul received the Democratic Party's nomination, unsuccessfully challenging Goodlatte in 2008. Businesswoman Janice Lee Allen Ph.D. ran as an Independent. In 2010, Jeffrey Vanke ran for the seat, also as an Independent, with endorsement from the Modern Whig Party as did Libertarian candidate Stuart Bain. Bob Goodlatte won the Republican nomination in the June 12th 2012 GOP primary, fending off a challenge from Karen Kwiatkowski. Democratic candidate Andy Schmookler challenged Bob Goodlatte in the November 6th 2012 general election. (More from Freebase)
