You can read our coverage of the event here.

Franklin and Obenshain are running in a House district that covers parts of Montgomery and Roanoke counties.

Cardinal News will sponsor a campaign forum Oct. 19 in Roanoke between state Senate candidates David Suetterlein (R) and Trish White-Boyd (D). That forum will be livestreamed on Cardinal’s YouTube channel, thanks to help from the Virginia Tech School of Communication. That event is now sold out but you can still sign up here to get on the wait list.

For a full list of who’s running, or to look up which district you’re in, see our election page.
