Dave Brat makes first post-primary campaign stop

(CNN) - A week after a major primary upset that rocked the Republican primary, Dave Brat, the little-known economics professor who defeated Rep. Eric Cantor, kicked off his general election campaign.

CNN caught up with Brat outside his home in Glen Allen, Virginia two days after his primary win. But his remarks Tuesday at a Rotary Club breakfast in Richmond mark his first official public appearance since toppling the majority leader in the GOP primary in Virginia's 7th Congressional District.

Jack Trammell is the Democrat who no longer has to face Eric Cantor

(CNN) - What a difference 24 hours makes.

Jack Trammell unanimously won the Democratic nomination for Virginia's 7th Congressional District seat at the party convention last weekend. That's because no one else wanted to to run against Rep. Eric Cantor, the second most powerful Republican in the House.
