Republican Congressman Dave Brat (VA-7) is now unopposed for the Republican nomination for reelection to his 7th district seat. There has been extensive speculation that he would draw a challenger, but one did not materialize by the filing deadline today at 5PM.
Additionally, Richmond Tea Party’s own board of directors member Ben Slone, who is also the chairman of the Goochland County Republican Committee, has been deemed elected to the 7th District Republican Committee Chairman position after also not drawing a challenger. This is fantastic to see another one of our own step forward into political leadership, to help drive direction in a way favorable to tea party principles. Congratulations, Ben!
