MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT! Dr. David Brat to Challenge Eric Cantor in Republican Primary


UPDATE: Campaign Website: Click Here

Dr. David Brat becomes the second primary challenger to Eric Cantor in this year’s primary. In November we wrote about Peter Greenwald, the first to announce a primary challenge to Cantor.

Brat’s entry into the fray is a strong statement about the ineffectiveness of Eric Cantor during his political career. One of Cantor’s best skills has been to deceive his supporters  into thinking that he is actually trying to stop Obama and reel in spending and horrible legislation like Obamacare.

But the truth is, despite dozens of meaningless “show votes” that pretend to defund or repeal Obamacare, Cantor has voted to fund Obamacare completely and his vote last month actually funded Obamacare by cutting disabled Veteran’s pensions. This is completely unacceptable and Cantor must be held accountable for his actions. It is time to retire Cantor and place someone in the seat that actually knows economics and is above political games that Cantor has become so adroit at playing.

I have known David Brat for several years and know him to be one of the most ethical people I have ever met as well as a brilliant thinker. And if I recall, I first met David at an ethics seminar he was teaching.

I have posted David’s curriculum vitae below in it’s entirety, and it is impressive. Here are some of the highlights:


  • Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration
  • Master of Divinity. Princeton Theological Seminary
  • Doctor of Philosophy in Economics

What an upgrade from Eric Cantor – the lawyer.

Below is the announcement from Dr. Brat and his schedule. Please review his curriculum vitae at the bottom of this post. It is most impressive.

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!

The 2 most important events to attend are as follows:

Thursday, Jan 9th–10am St.John’s Church in Richmond (site of Patrick Henry’s “Liberty or Death” speech)

Friday, Jan 10th–9:30am Municipal Building in Louisa, Louisa County (originally reported as in the town of Mineral)

    Just a reminder here: Mr. Cantor as has been a member of congress for 14 years and has raised the debt ceiling 14 time contributing ~ $12 TRILLION of the $18 TRILLION U.S. Debt that is now on the back of your children and grandchildren! Don’t believe me? Check it out for yourself right here:

    Have been looking for Mr. Brats webpage. He is going to need some money. The Tea Party has to step up and take the Republican Party down a notch. It is unforgivable to raise the debt ceiling again and again.

  3. Edith Schermerhorn says:

    I have not seen one add disputing Cantor! I need to know the truth so that I can help spread to people who do not support Cantor. What is going on?

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
