Dave Brat will launch his campaign to challenge Eric Cantor for the Republican nomination for the U.S. House of Representatives Va-7th seat at an event at 10AM Thursday morning at Patrick Henry Park (across from St.John’s Church):
This Thursday, January 9th, Dave Brat will formally announce his candidacy for the U.S. House of Representatives (Va-7th)! He will then begin a 2-day tour of the 7th District.
Dave is an economics professor at Randolph-Macon College, who also attended Princeton Seminary. He regularly speaks to business associations, government officials, and conservative organizations, including Tea Party groups.
Considered an extremely viable candidate by many analysts, including those at the National Review, Brat represents a serious challenge to House Majority Leader Cantor, who has helped sink Congress to a mere 6% approval rating. Already, some are framing this campaign as a “true conservative” taking on the “Establishment GOP.”
Dave will be making several “meet & greet” stops on Thursday & Friday across the 7th District, but you are highly encouraged to attend the two press events, so you can meet Dave and get to know this solid conservative!
