From the Bedell for Congress campaign:
Dave Brat Officially Joins Trump’s Virginia Campaign
Eileen Bedell Calls Decision to Join “Disgraceful”
Richmond, Va. (October 12, 2016) – Eileen Bedell, Democratic candidate for Virginia’s 7th Congressional district, is appalled that Dave Brat not only has declined to pull his endorsement of Donald Trump, but has doubled down and joined has now officially joined his Virginia team.
“Not only has Donald bragged about sexually assaulting women, but as of this week, we have had over ten reports from a panoply of sources that he has acted on those words and sexually assaulted multiple women,” Eileen said.
“Instead of pulling his endorsement like his fellow Republican colleagues who respect their party and its traditions, Brat has officially joined the Trump campaign as a committee member and is leading its Virginia efforts. Dave Brat doesn’t run away from those who brag about sexually assaulting women, he pulls them closer and joins their team. This is disgraceful and beneath the dignity of the office Brat is temporarily occupying.”
Ms. Bedell attended law school at the College of William & Mary and began her practice in central Virginia nearly 20 years ago. She has always focused her work on the representation of individuals and small businesses, helping them navigate the legal process and ensuring their interests are protected when it matters most.

With the support of her husband and children, she looks forward to representing, fighting for, and protecting the interests of all the citizens of Virginia’s 7th congressional district.
