Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA) says House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the national Democrat Party are “trying to buy” his congressional seat in Virginia’s 7th District.

During an exclusive interview with SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Daily, Brat told Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow that his opponent, Abigail Spanberger’s campaign, has been astroturfed by Pelosi to stop his re-election.

“The dynamics are $10 million … they have just shifted money from all over the place. Pelosi’s given a million,” Brat said. “She’s got doorknockers from Maryland down here in Virginia I mean by the busloads. She’s got pamphlets going out one a day … They’re just trying to buy the seat.

“The Left is so well-funded,” Brat continued. “She’s well-funded by every leftist group out there.”

Among many of Spanberger’s left-wing positions, Brat said, is her support for sanctuary cities for criminal illegal aliens.

“Some people I don’t think fully get what sanctuary means,” Brat said. “Instead of deporting the criminals and gangs and drug dealers, she wants to offer them sanctuary here, in Virginia at taxpayer expense. That’s just a huge deal.”

As Breitbart News reported, Spanberger previously taught at an Islamic school which became notorious for breeding convicted and suspected terrorists after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Spanberger’s school is most notorious for graduating Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, the would-be assassin who plotted to murder President George W. Bush after joining Al Qaeda.

The “terror high” also graduated two men who were denied entry into Israel after they were accused of being suicide bombers. Also, in 2004, former school employee Ismael Selim Elbarasse was arrested on suspicion of aiding a potential terrorist attack and was accused of working closely with the political wing of Hamas, a Palestinian terrorist organization.

Breitbart News Sunday is broadcast live on SiriusXM Patriot Channel 125 from 7:00-10:00 p.m. Eastern.
