Barksdale, 38, is one of four lawyers challenging six sitting Circuit Court judges in the nonpartisan judicial race, marking the first time since 1986 that incumbent judges are facing contested elections.
"I have nothing but respect for the judiciary," he said.
At the same time, Barksdale said, "If someone has the word 'judge' in front of their names, that doesn't mean they have more experience than some litigators in this county."
Barksdale said he built his work ethic tending to his father's dairy farm in rural southern Virginia. "You work in an office," he said, "you are not really working."
