"On the day she was born, he handed me her Democrat Women's card," Chris said.
Not to be outdone, Grandpa Ron signed Aubrey up as a Young Republican.
While Chris and Liz maintain Aubrey's a "bipartisan baby," both grandpas still try to get the upper hand.
"My dad will get her elephants and elephant shirts and her dad will get her donkeys and donkey shirts as little toy things. It's funny," Chris said. "We just laugh. If using that competition gets (Aubrey) more toys, she'll gladly oblige."
Chris said the family's political dynamic serves as an advantage, because it helps open him up to different viewpoints.
"When you hear differences of opinions and you're very friendly and cordial about it when you hear them, you take away so much and you learn so much," he said.
"I'm open-minded, I like to hear a difference of opinion because I really want to learn," he said. "If you're hearing only the same things - the same views that back your view - in every conversation, you're not learning, you're not getting that other side.
"Fortunately, I get that other side every day," he said.
Walters said he is eager to get to work on a host of projects across his district, which spans portions of Kanawha and Putnam counties.
He said he's reached out to the Rev. Matthew Watts on some of his initiatives to improve Charleston's West Side. And he's talked with Charleston Area Alliance president Matthew Ballard on attempts to get a grocery store on Charleston's East End.
He also wants to work with West Virginia State University President Dr. Brian Hemphill on ways to support university growth and fundraising projects.
Walters has also talked with Senate Majority Leader John Unger, D-Berkeley, to open lines of communication with Democratic leadership in the Senate. He also hopes to meet with fellow 8th District Sen. Erik Wells, D-Kanawha, in the coming days.
Walters is hoping he'll be able to work across the aisle in the Legislature as well as he's done in family life.
"Republicans and Democrats have to work together to craft legislation," he said. "If you cannot do that, you're going to have an ineffective House and an ineffective Senate.
"I'm somebody that knows how to do that and knows how to create an effective system, and I'm going to be practicing that as a Senator," he said.
