The race for Virginia’s 7th Congressional District, between Dave Brat (R), Abigail Spanberger (D) and Joe Walton (L), is one of the most talked about races in the country.

The Libertarian candidate in the race, Joe B. Walton, served on the County of Powhatan Board of Supervisors from 2007 until 2011.

In an exclusive 1-on 1 interview with 8News Anchor Juan Conde, Walton said the three most pivotal issues concerning the district are constituent services, executive branch oversight and finding a modernized immigration system. 

According to Walton’s campaign website, his political views center on “limiting government’s size and scope while maximizing personal freedoms.

At the end of the interview with 8News, Walton shared his message with voters. 

“I have a commitment, the knowledge, and the background to be a successful representative. I have a record of having been effective and accountable in Central Virginia and I’ll continue to do that if I’m elected tomorrow."
