Today, Club for Growth PAC endorsed Congressman Dave Brat in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District.
Rep. Brat famously defeated Majority Leader Eric Cantor in an insurgent campaign in the 2014 Republican primary. Since joining Congress, he has been a steadfast voice for fiscal conservatism and economic freedom. Rep. Brat is a member of the Freedom Caucus and has a 97% lifetime rating on the Club for Growth scorecard.
In the general election, Rep. Brat faces liberal Democrat Abigail Spanberger, whose support for single-payer healthcare and tax increases is far outside the mainstream of this R +6 district.
“Club for Growth PAC is proud to endorse Cong. Dave Brat for reelection,” Club for Growth President David McIntosh said. “Since his insurgent win in 2014, Brat has proven himself to be a principled steward of taxpayer dollars, and a courageous voice for limited government. Club for Growth PAC is committed to making sure Rep. Brat returns to Congress next year.”
