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.
