Along with all the raw, steamed, and fried oysters, Congressman Scott Rigell and his opponent in next month’s election, Suzanne Patrick, were there. Both candidates told 10 On Your Side it’s very important for residents to get out and vote in next month’s mid-term elections.

“We need to have really solid representation from this district, who understands the military, who served in the military for a substantial period of time, who understands the heritage of the military, as I do,” Patrick said.

“I think our number one threat, and this is with a full recognition of what’s happening overseas with ISIS and other threats, is apathy,” Rigell said. “If apathy grabs hold of this country, and I think it’s trying to take hold, this is what truly concerns me.”

The election is November 4. You have until Tuesday to register to vote in Virginia.
