The inside scoop on Dave Brat from his students

By CNN's Kylie Mohr

“He was very professional and he enforced a dress code in class – you couldn’t wear flip flops.” So says a recent graduate from Randolph-Macon College about Professor David Brat. The same David Brat who defeated House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) in a primary Tuesday that sent political shockwaves from the Richmond, Virginia suburbs up I-95 to the U.S. Capitol.

“He was very serious about preparing his students for the future,” said Alyssa Warren, Randolph-Macon’s 2013 valedictorian. Violations to the no jeans, no t-shirts, no flip-flop dress code resulted in an ethics paper assignment.

SOTU Sneak Peek

There is no shortage of stories dominating the news this week, but what will be leading the headlines on Sunday morning? These are some of the stories we are looking at this week.

Santorum takes the Deep South: Rick Santorum won the Republican presidential primaries in Alabama and Mississippi last night. He's solidified his position as the favorite candidate for the GOP's conservative base. Santorum may have the momentum, but Romney has the delegate count in his favor. Last week, the Gingrich campaign said they had to win Alabama and Mississippi to remain credible. But there are no signs of Gingrich bowing out. Last night he asserted he would continue to the national convention in Tampa.

Assessing the 2012 GOP race

Tony Perkins President from the Family Research Council, and  Dick Armey Chairman, FreedomWorks assess the 2012 GOP race.

Dick Armey on Newt Gingrich: "I feel bad for him. I think he's digressed into a state of taking a second rate campaign and turning it into a first rate vendetta, and I think he's putting himself out of the game because he can't get over his obsession about his own hurt feelings over the campaign in Iowa."

Tony Perkins on Romney: "I disagree that Romney has captured the evangelical support, the conservative support. They're warming to him but he still has a long way to go. "
