When Dave Brat beat Eric Cantor in the 2014 GOP primaries in Virginia, it served as both a rallying cry to Tea Party conservatives that they could beat the Establishment system and also a warning to the Establishment that they couldn’t take any race for granted. Now, Brat is in an extremely tight race to keep his seat.
He just got a nice endorsement from his party’s loudest voice.
Congressman @DaveBratVA7th is one of the hardest working, and smartest, people in Washington. He is strong on the Border, Crime, the Military, our Vets and the 2nd Amendment. He is a powerful vote for MAGA and loves the Great State of Virginia. Dave has my Total Endorsement!

Brat has been one of the most consistently conservative voters in the House. He has helped promote President Trump’s agenda while avoiding selling out to the less conservative elements in the House that have been pushing their moderate perspective ever since taking control in 2010.
Virginia and America need Brat to continue his work as a strong conservative voice that fights both Republicans and Democrats for fiscal responsibility in Washington DC. He has my support.
