State Senator Mark Obenshain was in the Shenandoah Valley Wednesday night. The Republican from Harrisonburg is running for attorney general in 2013, and was in Waynesboro rallying for support.
The senator says he aims to expand the realm of freedom for Virginians. He also says that on November 6 the first question on ballot about eminent domain will give Virginians the opportunity to take back some liberties.
"We want to make sure that it's very difficult for us to go back to the day when government can come in and take my farm because it thinks that a box store is going to generate more tax dollars for my county," Obenshain said. "It's just wrong."
The amendment allows eminent domain only in cases of public use. It requires fair compensation and only the property needed can be acquired.
