David Brat was a 2014 Republican candidate seeking election to the U.S. House to represent the 7th Congressional District of Virginia.


Brat earned his bachelor's in business from Hope College. He also attended Princeton Seminary. He worked as a volunteer in Walter Stosch's office from 2005-2012. He has served on the Governor’s Board of Economists since he was appointed in 2006.[1]

Campaign themes


Brat commented on why he is running for Eric Cantor's seat in 2014. Brat said, "I want to be Eric Cantor’s term limit." He also discussed Cantor's leadership style saying, "He had two CRs at the end, one in favor of the shutdown and one opposed to the shutdown at the same time. And that’s fairly symbolic of unprincipled leadership. I mean, that’s not a leadership position, where you’re on Side A and Side B at the same time and you’ve got your finger up in the air, checking which way the wind is blowing."[1]
