Tom Perriello, the Democrat seeking the 5th Congressional District seat held by Republican Virgil Goode, stopped by the Gingerbread Caf?onday on a tour though the district.
Perriello said that two areas at the top of his priority list are jobs and national security.

"That means more training and better education," he said.
