Virginia Fifth District Race- #1871 - Perriello Gets It Wrong

Statement from Robert Hurt, Republican Congressional candidate in Virginia's Fifth Congressional District: "Over the next few months I look forward to engaging in a spirited debate over the better direction of this country. I look forward to debating Tom Perriello any where - any time. The people of the 5th District have a right to know where we stand on the issues, examine our voting records and see how we approach the serious issues facing our country and its future.
