7th District Congressional Primary
Tuesday, June 10th, 6am-7pm
Normal Polling Places
Tuesday is Primary Day in the 7th Congressional District! We encourage you to learn about the candidates and exercise your right to vote. The winner is likely to be your next congressman, since there is no other challenger.
America has been trending toward becoming a more powerful, centralized government for decades. The evidence is all around us–Obamacare, IRS scrutiny and other federal intrusion into almost all aspects of our lives. As government increases its power, the power of the citizens diminishes. We are looking for a candidate who will reverse the big government trend and move us back to self-governance.
The open primary for the 7th Congressional District on June 10th is another opportunity to select a representative whom we believe will challenge the status quo in DC and work to limit government’s reach. The incumbent is 6-term Congressman Eric Cantor. He is being challenged by a new entrant into politics, Dr. David Brat, an ethics and economics professor at Randolph Macon College.
We encourage you to learn about these candidates and select the one who most closely aligns with our Tea Party principles.
