Dave Brat Shying Away from Media and Constituents

Posted: Updated:
GLEN ALLEN, Va. (WRIC) - Dave Brat's campaign has been overwhelmed by the attention they've received since their stunning primary election win.

But Brat has shied away from speaking publicly since his big win, leaving many people wondering who Dave Brat is.

Aside from a few phone calls to national media outlets, Dave Brat has not spoken publicly to the press or his future constituents.

A CNN crew caught Brat pulling into his driveway Thursday at his Glen Allen home but Brat was a man of few words.

"I am not ignoring you and I respect you guys as professionals and everything and I will be out but I need a few days to decompress after that election."

Brat went on to say he would be spending some time with his family.

Brat did have a live phone conversation with a network affiliate yesterday and many have criticized him for not being able to answer policy questions about minimum wage and foreign policy.

Political Analyst Daniel Palazolo says Brat is not use to this type of attention.

"As time goes on I think he will get better, but you are going to see some bumps along the road here no question about it."
