It's probably safe to say that Trammell's political platform will be the polar opposite of Brat's (go figure, right?). Trammell most likely is in opposition to the restrictions Brat wishes to place on immigration and what it would mean for international students. Trammell works very closely with the Higgins Academic Center at Randolph-Macon for tutoring and disabilities, which likely allows Trammell to converse and establish relationships with both domestic and foreign students. Since he is helping students with disabilities and academic affairs, it's probably safe to say that Trammell will be gaining support from the exchange students as well as students with disabilities.
As for his platform on the Second Amendment, it's difficult to say whether or not he supports it or not. But, since he's in opposition to Brat and since he has closer workings with students, Trammell will most likely be in support of restricting gun laws to better protect against mass shootings like Sandy Hook.
At this point in the campaign, Trammell most likely has a better voting consensus among the students of Randolph-Macon because of his position as both a professor and with his connections in the disabilities program. Many students have said that they plan to vote for Trammell because of his compassion for helping students with disabilities.
More coverage will follow once his platform is made clear to the public.
