Brat Defeats Cantor in Primary

Tea Party favorite Dave Brat, a virtually unknown economist, calls his surprise primary victory over U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor a "miracle from God." Brat, who was outraised in fundraising by Cantor more than ten to one, says he claimed victory because "dollars do not vote, people do."

The economics professor from Randolph Macon College says he wants to return the country to free market, constitutional and Judeo-Christian principles. In November, Brat goes on to face a fellow Randolph Macon professor, Democrat Jack Trammell, in Virginia’s heavily Republican 7th district.
