RICHMOND, Va. -- As part of CBS 6’s coverage of the November elections, candidates have the opportunity to come on the CBS 6 News at 7 for a one-on-one interview. Last week, incumbent Republican Congressman Dave Brat from the 7th District came in to discuss his work on the federal budget.

He also talked about Jacai Colson, the Prince George’s County, Maryland police officer who was killed after three brothers ambushed his police station. Colson was a student at Randolph-Macon College, where Brat was a professor and his advisor.

Brat’s opponent in November will be Democrat Eileen Bedell. Look for her interview in the coming days.
