The Libertarian candidate for the 7th Congressional District made a stop in Charlottesville on Saturday afternoon.
James Carr met with the State Central Committee of the Libertarian Party of Virginia at the West Main restaurant. He said he wanted to provide another option for voters who may not like the ideas of the Republican and Democratic parties.
He said he's a fan of term limits on members of Congress, which he says can take away the idea of career politicians in Washington.
"We have been for far too long reliant on these career politicians, and they are completely disconnected from the voters in their district," Carr said. "The voters say they aren't going to take that anymore. They are going to start putting term limits in place with the election, and I think we need to formalize that."
Carr is facing two additional political newcomers in the 7th District. He's running against Democrat Jack Trammell and Republican David Brat, who just this week defeated House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in the party's primary.
