    Cantor defeated in primary by Tea Party



    A stunning defeat of the Republican hierarchy sent waves of shock and fear through Congress on both sides of the aisle as the Tea Party is back. Eric Cantor the House Majority Whip was expected to rise to Speaker of the House if re-elected.

    Tea Partiers accused him of renegging on spending, debt and immigration - all conservative ideals. Speaking of spending, he was connected to the financial industry and spent $5M on the campaign while David Brat, a college professor spent around $122,000 to defeat him and it wasn't even close with Brat getting 56% of the vote to 44% for Cantor.

    The immigration bill was co-authored by Rubio and supported by many republicans, some whom are up for re-election.

    This could halt construction of a house immigration bill and could cause replublicans not to cooperate with Obummer.


    He was on 60 MINs couple of years ago and was grilled on Reagan when it was pointed out he raised taxes. He said no he didn't and his PR man yelled out no from off the camera.

    Leslie showed tape of Reagan saying he had to raise taxes. He didn't want to but everyone in his white house pressed him on it. He gave us the biggest tax cuts in history then took a third back by raising taxes 4 times in his first term and about 7 or 8 more times in his 2d term, something Cantor did not know.

    That's why H. Bush said read my lips, no new taxes but he renegged too and it cost him re-election.

    But the point is the Tea Party is back and speaking of spending, you should have seen his $1.5M office 60 Mins showed.

    Big upset for sure, repubs have to be wondering what is going to happen next. Maybe shutting down the government wasn't so smart after all. Cantor was looking to far ahead and not taking care of those that voted him in office. Papers said it was a low turn out of voters, people are pissed at him. Personally I love it, hoping Kipke gets the same treatment in AA county. He looking for that executive job and spends money like it isn't his. A mini. newt gringrich.

    I don't think the dems shutting down the gov't had anythng to do with it. As mentioned in the link it was mostly spending and caving in on immigration and other hot issues.

    Don't forget the 2010 mid terms when they took back congress but then everyone disappeared for OBYs second win. Dick Morris said that's what got him mixed up when he predicted a big win for Mitt. He was going by the numbers of the 08 mid terms and thought those people would show up again.

    OBY won because they didnt, especially 40M Christians.

    The GOP is all over the place.

    Poor leadership and too much inter-group squabbling. That's why Hillary will probably be President come 2016.

    YOU'RE PROBABLY RIGHT - IN CAPS AND IN BOLD-LOL.

    There's not a candidate that can beat her at the moment. Christie? Hell no.
    He's pro abortion so the Christians won't show up again.

    Rubio? Hell no again. He co-authored the immigration bill.

    Cruz? Doubt he has the money or the clout.

    Ryan? Forget it.

    Turn out was up nearly 40% form 2012. Turnout had nothing to do with it. People are pissed though and tired of self-serving politicians.

    Low turnout is always the media spin when a guy is doing business as usual in Dc goes down.
