Interesting Virginia Primary Results Just Moments Ago
Novice Tea-bagger Representative candidate Dave Brat just handed Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor a defeat in the Virginia GOP primary. A $200,000 campaign fund challenging a 6-digit campaign fund. Apparently, Cantor was not
backwards, conservative enough for the 7th District Tea-baggers.
“‘There needs to be a change,’ said Joe Mullins, who voted in Chesterfield County Tuesday. The engineering company employee said he has friends who tried to arrange town hall meetings with Cantor, who declined their invitations.”
“Brat has accused the House majority leader of being a top cheerleader for “amnesty” for immigrants in the U.S. illegally. Cantor has responded forcefully by boasting in mailers of blocking Senate plans ‘to give illegal aliens amnesty.'”

The present atmosphere of The House has been one split three ways between Democrats, Republicans, and Tea-baggers. Almost nothing moves through The House having a progressive bend to it. If the Tea-baggers take a larger portion of the split, then the stance will be one of greater obstinacy. I am assuming this district will remain Republican or Tea-bagger even with the recent development.
It will be interesting to see if Cantor still runs and splits the Republican/Tea-bagger vote.
He cries about illegal aliens brought(bought) by their rich friends. Legalize them and watch them flee the country. Brat is a traitor and nothing more. He uses dialectics for personal gain through his benefactors.
Brat is no different than a communist 60 years ago.
Yes, but he teabags, and therein lies the difference.
District went 42% Obama in 2012!
4:6 for Cantor in 2012.
Unless the less radical republicans go for the dem……..
Gridlock in House not a bad thing.
The repubs for years have been working to limit voting. Well, this election proves they have been successful. People stayed home. : )
DB, are you saying they may have gerrymandered themselves out of a job in some cases?
