Virginia 7th: Dave Brat Virtually Tied With Democrat Challenger



An incumbent Republican congressman is hanging on for dear life in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District.

According to a Christopher Newport University poll released Monday, Democrat Abigail Spanberger holds a one percentage-point lead, and is winning 96 percent of Democrats in the district.

According to Brat, he is comfortable with the polling.

“The Republicans are coming home, independents are breaking our way after the Kavanaugh story, and so in the end, I think Virginia people are going to do the right thing,” Brat said in a recent radio interview.

The Tea Party conservative and Freedom Caucus member won a stunning upset victory over then-House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in 2014, single-handedly halting the Gang of Eight amnesty bill from becoming law. The disastrous bill, pushed by RINO’s like Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), would have provided amnesty to millions of illegal aliens in exchange for the opaque promise of “increased border security.”

Spanberger wants to undo Brat’s immigration work completely, supporting the pathway to citizenship that Brat staunchly opposed.

“I am committed to finding real, bipartisan solutions to fix our immigration system, and I will work with anyone to create a proposal for immigration reform that ensures border security, takes into account the needs of our workforce, respects our values and history, gives certainty to DACA recipients, and creates an earned pathway to legal status for undocumented immigrants currently living here as long as they abide by the law, work hard, and pay taxes,” her campaign site says.

Spanberger has also  committed to universal government-funded healthcare.

“I support Medicare X, which is a public option as a path towards universal coverage in the achievement of universal coverage. I believe that a public option is the way that we can achieve that goal through government-provided insurance that does, in fact, build off the existing Medicare network, because it exists in every single zip code across the country and that is the way we can achieve health care for everyone. And I do, in principle, support single-payer, but I believe universal coverage through a public option is the method I would pursue,” she said during a debate with Brat.

Virginia’s 7th Congressional District typically leans right.

“The 2018 Cook Partisan Voter Index for this district is R+6, meaning that in the previous two presidential elections, this district’s results were 6 percentage points more Republican than the national average,” according to Ballotpedia.

TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District

It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”



Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.

The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.

Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”

“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”

This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
