BLACKSBURG, Va. (WDBJ) - There’s a new candidate putting his name in the race to go up against Delegate Chris Hurst (D) this fall.

Thursday, local businessman Larry Linkous (R) announced his campaign for Virginia’s 12th District.

Linkous is former chairman of the Montgomery County Board of Supervisors and has been active in the local business community for 49 years.

“I think that I have knowledge that a lot of folks won’t have that I’ll be able to really represent the needs and wants of our district simply because I know the district, I know the folks,” Linkous said.

Linkous said it’s important to have someone local to give a voice to Southwest Virginia.
