RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) Randolph-Macon College professor and economist Dr. David Brat announced he will challenge Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor in the upcoming Republican primary.
I teach economics to college students every day. The major issue, in dollar terms, that affect the average person is the debt, Bratt said at a campaign stop in Church Hill Thursday. The power figures in D.C. are busy catering to their Rolodexes instead of solving that debt problem.
7th districtCantor, considered one of the most powerful politicians in Washington D.C., has represented Virginias 7th District since 2001.
Parts of Chesterfield, Henrico and Richmond are included in the 7th District.
The counties of Goochland, Hanover, Louisa and New Kent are also included.
Brat will spend the next two days talking to 7th District voters.
Im running to unite [the Republican Party]. Im trying to build a broad coalition of people who follow the Republican creed. The basis is fiscal responsibility, Brat said.
He planned stops in New Kent County, St. Johns Church in Richmond and courthouses in Hanover, Henrico and Chesterfield on Thursday.

God speed to this man. May he kick Cantors ass!
One can hope.
I’ll vote for him! I’ve worked for Cantor, attended fundraisers and have met him many times. I was in full support until his latest set of antics over the last 2 to 3 years. I’m done with this Rino.
Sounds like a good candidate. Hopefully he will get many volunteers willing to put everything on the line to see him get elected.
I’ve voted 3rd party rather than Cantor in the last two elections .... no chance Cantor was going to lose, so it was a worthless gesture other than my own little “protest”. I’d like to see a CONSERVATIVE, decent & SERIOUS candidate.
The Obama Administration Culture is based on lies, persecution of political opponents, and violating the US Constitution.
Under the leadership of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker of the House John Boehner, the GOP Establishment Congressional Culture is based on becoming more like the Obama Administration Culture.
By design, the GOP Establishment has become a doormat speed bump for Obamacrat politicians on the very wide, and well lighted Highway to European Socialism.
Without the capable cave-in expertise of McConnell and Boehner, the successful fundamental transformation of America into a weak, financially devastated, morally corrupt, unreliable, former World Power would not have been possible.
To those US Senators and House members who still support McConnell and Boehner, remember Einsteins definition of insanity:
INSANITY IS DOING THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER AGAIN AND EXPECTING DIFFERENT RESULTS.
