Tom Perriello, a candidate for the Democratic nomination for Virginia governor, touted the value of community colleges as a path to the middle class during a stop in Roanoke Friday on a tour of Southwest Virginia.

As governor, Perriello said he would push to make two years of community college or career and technical training free for Virginians.

He thinks the idea could draw bipartisan support because the community college system is popular across party lines and getting people into the workforce and paying taxes has appeal for conservatives.
