On Saturday, Al Weed officially launched his campaign for U.S. Congress, running against Republican incumbent Virgil Goode. Weed spent the day making a series of kickoff announcements in Martinsville, Danville, South Boston, Farmville, Rustburg, Lovingston, and ending up in Charlottesville. The Democrat is a Nelson County farmer who has spent 42 years on active and reserve duty in the army (including serving in special ops). David Dadurka has the story in today’s Progress.
