BREAKING NEWS: VA-7 competitive!


The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and the Democratic Party of Virginia (DPVA) have teamed up to help finance Eileen Bedell’s campaign to oust David Brat from his 7th District seat in Congress.

This stunning news mirrors the equally stunning success of Eileen Bedell, whose campaign for the seat once reliably held by Eric Cantor was deemed quixotic when it began ten months ago.  But re-drawn district lines, a do-nothing and divisive opponent, and Bedell’s own savvy agenda of practical and level-headed solutions, have combined to bring her poll numbers close enough to Brat’s that the Party’s purse strings have been loosened.

Dave Brat, meanwhile, who regularly earns the scorn of Virginia’s leading conservative blog, Bearing Drift, has been living up to his name and acting pretty much like this:

And let’s not forget that, like his hero Donald Trump, Brat has gained the respect of the KKK and other white supremacist groups.

Do we need this Trump-toadying, tantrum-throwing Brat in Congress?  No we do not!

Let’s lean in, dig deep, and make history with an Eileen Bedell victory!

Please DONATE HERE to Eileen’s campaign – not for Eileen, but for us all.
