CONGRATULATIONS Dave Brat, Conservative Constitutionalist Victor in the VIRGINIA PRIMARY defeating Eric 'Amnesty' Cantor!

Chalice & All, this is a very interesting article from The Virginia Right.  You may know by now that the National Tea Parties did not support Dave Brat.  The Tea Parties in our surrounding counties did so.  If not financially, at least by sponsorship.

I know they were... I learned long ago that the Tea Party leadership is like any group... struggling for power, and trying to centralize. What is truly is grassroots is not going to be easy for them to centralize.  By it's very nature, the Tea party resists centralization!  :-)

Jenny Beth has never spoken for me, but many things she says, I do agree with.

It absolutely was door-to-door.  There's no mistaking it.  The reason I pointed out non interest in Dave's campaign by the national T.P. is because they were quick to engage Dave 'after' the victory.

Chalice, I agree.  The TEA Party is not a top down organization.  It is bottom up.  That drives all the so called experts nuts!  Just because the national groups are not involved doesn't mean much.  The power, manpower, and money is with the locals.  It is the manpower that is what is important.  It can and many times does trump money!

Interesting post Ann, Thanks!

I really think the national media. and perhaps the various Tea Party groups forget that the Tea Party is a grass roots movement.  Locals were involved because local matters!

I read yesterday that the turnout in this election was 40%+ greater than the 2014 election for Cantor.  This was a grassroots, door to door movement.
