Congressman Dave Brat (VA-7) is among a highly-select group to receive the “Worst for Women” Award, meted out by American Bridge and UltraViolet PAC. How did Brat get to be best at being worst?
- Congressman Dave Brat has voted in line with Trump 89 percent of the time.
- He voted– and sponsored a bill – to defund Planned Parenthood, he voted against the Title X Family Planning Program, against a minimum wage hike, to repeal health care, for tax cuts for the 1%, and cosponsored an abortion ban.
- He has the highest ratingfrom anti-choice interest groups.
- He once mocked constituents who were concerned about attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, saying “The women are in my grill no matter where I go,” and accusing them of being paid protestors.
BUT — we in #VA07 have a candidate running against him who’ll be fantastic for women and for men, too.
Abigail Spanberger is strong on all the issues I care about most: healthcare, education, and foreign policy.
Democrats in #VA07 are ENERGIZED, and the race, once deemed safe for the GOP, is now considered a toss-up by Cook Political Report, Larry Sabato, and CNN, but Brat is going to get major help from well-heeled Trump supporters and we need resources to get lots and lots of women up in his grill!
