NBC12 First at 4 Congressional Candidate interviews (UPDATED)

with 2 comments

By: Ryan Nobles – bio | email

Starting this Wednesday, NBC12 First at 4 will be hosting candidates running for Congress in each district in the Richmond viewing area.  The interviews will include candidates from Virginia’s 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th & 7th districts.

Some of these races, such as the 5th district contest, are some of the biggest in the country and could play a major role in deciding who controls Congress for the next two years.  Others, such as the 1st district,  have captured national media attention because events outside of the candidate’s control.  Finally, others like the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 7th are considered long shot contests with entrenched incumbents.

Regardless, we will give each candidate a fair shake. If you haven’t made up your mind yet we hope this informative segment will help you make your decision.

Here is the schedule that we have confirmed so far:  (more to be added as time goes on)
