Cantor challenger launching campaign at Patrick Henry Park on Thursday
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!
Church Hill is in the 3rd District, represented by Bobby Scott (D).
TAGGED: Dave Brat, election, Eric Cantor
This isn’t Cantor’s district. Why here?
I’m guessing for the “Liberty or Death” symbolism, and because of the secret cabal of Church Hill Republicans who actually run everything.
Perhaps this Brat (T) worst’s talent does not include using Google Maps.
There have been a couple of Tea Party type events in Church Hill this past year, if I remember correctly. They were held on Jefferson Hill, I think. Could it be the same group that is sponsoring this event?
