The Tea Party Republican who unseated House Majority Leader Eric Cantor last week is ramping up his campaign for the upcoming general election. Congressional candidate Dave Brat says his campaign represents all corners of the Republican Party.

Dave Brat spoke at a news conference today outside his campaign headquarters in Glen Allen, Virginia. He announced that Amanda Chase, who worked on Eric Cantor's campaign in 2010, will be taking over as Brat's interim campaign manager.

Brat says part of his campaign will focus on the need for term limits.

Brat did not take questions from reporters. He has been keeping the media at a distance since his stunning upset win against House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in Virginia's 7th District's GOP primary last week.

Democrat Jack Trammell is set to face Brat in the general election. Both teach at Randolph-Macon College.
