President Trump has tweeted his support for Congressman Dave Brat:
@DaveBratVA7th is one of the hardest working, and smartest, people in Washington. He is strong on the Border, Crime, the Military, our Vets and the 2nd Amendment. He is a powerful vote for MAGA and loves the Great State of Virginia. Dave has my Total Endorsement!
Trump is right, Brat may well be the smartest Congressman on the Hill, and he supports all the right things, including a strong military, strong borders, and our 2nd Amendment. He is a true, solid, conservative who we can count on in the 7th district. The President’s endorsement should be a help in this traditionally very Republican district.
