Let’s be clear, we are late to the fight on this one. But with November looming and the importance of getting as many good conservatives elected as possible, we are proud to endorse Dave Brat for Congress in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District.

Back in June, against all odds, Brat defeated then Majority Leader Eric Cantor in an upset that stunned the nation. The statistics were amazing.¬†Eric Cantor’s campaign spent nearly $200,000 at steakhouses, Dave Brat spent $200,000 on his entire campaign and yet even being outspent 40-1, Dave Brat won by 11%. It was the ultimate grassroots victory.

Running on a platform of comprehensive conservatism, Brat supports what he calls the Republican Creed. And while leading with fiscal issues, Dave is also strong on the issues of life and marriage. As Chair of the Economics and Business Department at Randolph-Macon College, Dave holds a Masters in Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary as well as a Ph.D. in Economics from American University.

Outspoken about his conservatism and desire to change the way things are done in Washington, Dave is the antithesis of the GOP Establishment and as such presents a real threat to them. Unlike many Members of Congress, Dave won’t just be a vote. He will be a voice for our values.

While we may not have helped him win in June, we are excited to get him across the finish line in November and put him in a strong position for re-election in 2016. This is a beachhead won and we must do all that we can to help hold it.
