Libertarian Will Hammer announces for 20th House District race

HAMMER1liteWill Hammer has announced that he is running against Dickie Bell for the Virginia House of Delegates 20th District seat this year.

Hammer ran last year against Bob Goodlatte for the Sixth District congressional seat, getting the highest percentage of any Libertarian candidate for a federal office in Virginia with 12.3%, 22,602 votes.

Hammer is a lifelong resident of Staunton. He graduated from Robert E. Lee in 2005 and Hampden-Sydney College in 2009 with a BA in economics.

Hammer said that most of last year’s campaign carries over to this year, “The race may have changed, but my principles have not. I will be looking to get people to talk about the role of government, personal and economic freedom, and the grave failure of the two party system.”

Hammer did note some issues that he will be running on this year, “When elected, I will fight against the Dominion pipeline, to end gerrymandering and corruption, bring transparency to Richmond and publish a reasoning for every vote that I place. I will hold online and in person public forums for my constituents. I will protect your gun rights as I was given an A grade from Gun Owners of America last year. I will fight for judicial reform, marijuana legalization, balancing the budget and paying down the state’s debt. I will walk the walk, not talk the talk.”
