Former Presidential Hopeful Mitt Romney Campaigns on Behalf of Brat

Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee has been making campaign stops for Dave Brat, the Congressional candidate for Virginia’s 7th District and Tea Party member, reports The Richmond Times-Dispatch.

“We need more people in Congress who understand how to grow the economy, who believe in American and who want to make us stronger. That’s why I support Dave,” announced Romney in a Facebook post.

Romney also made a stop on Tuesday evening in support of Barbara Comstock, who is running for Virginia’s 10th district. Comstock served as the head of Romney’s Virginia campaign in 2012.

Romney’s support for both Brat and Comstock also served as an effort to  boost the candidates’ funds right before Tuesday’s midnight fundraising deadline for the third quarter.

Additionally, Romney’s backing helps to reinforce Dave Brat’s claim that he has worked to bring unification to the GOP since he dethroned House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in June’s primaries.
