During Monday night's debate in Warrenton, Washington DC insider and lobbyist made it very clear that he will not work for the people of the 5th District, but rather the people of the 5th District will work for him. Publicly mocking 5th District Virginians whom he referred to as "common folks" like "Billy Bob and Bobbie Jo," DC insider John Douglass told us that he doesn't need to listen to us "common folks" in the 5th District in order to represent us.

In response to DC insider John Douglass' bizarre comments, Robert said, "You know [John Douglass] may think that's funny, maybe that's some kind of humor. But I tell you, I take Billy Bob very seriously. And Billy Bob is why I am in Washington - to look after Billy Bob, and look after every person in Virginia's 5th District."
