Madison Project Congratulates Dave Brat’s Stunning Win in Virginia’s 7th District Primary

Fort Worth, TX – The Madison Project PAC made the following statement regarding conservative Dave Brat’s stunning upset victory in tonight’s Virginia 7th Congressional District primary race:

“The fact that an under-funded candidate Dave Brat has upset the sitting Majority Leader in a primary is not only a statement that the Tea Party is alive and well, but that amnesty and comprehensive open borders is dead on arrival,” said Daniel Horowitz of the Madison Project.   “The Washington political class has always shown up for the highly publicized primary battles where millions of dollars are pumped in, but tonight we see that when the people are left alone and in control of their own destiny, they pick conservative principles over politics as usual. Brat’s victory is a mandate for leadership reform, and shot across the bow for the rest of the Republicans. It means that amnesty, ruling-class politics, and the status quo will no longer be tolerated.

“Just a few short weeks ago, the Establishment was working the media over trying to shut the coffin on conservatives and the Tea Party, but first Mississippi, and now Virginia’s 7th show that the people, and not the political class will not accept a growing government dead-set on expanding their power, and passing policies that do nothing but line the pockets of special interests. This upset is a clear indication that the people are ready to fight for the heart and soul of both the Republican Party and our country. ”

The Madison Project supports and raises money for conservative candidates that have demonstrated a commitment to full-spectrum conservatism. The Madison Project website can be found at
