House Majority Leader Eric Cantor lost his GOP Virginia primary race Tuesday night in a stunning upset to Tea Party-backed challenger Dave Brat.
Brat, an economics professor and political novice, latched onto the hot-button issue of immigration. And he accused Cantor, the No. 2 Republican in the GOP-led House, of supporting immigration legislation that would give “amnesty” to millions of people living illegally in the United States.
Eric Cantor is/was a problem as he was a country club Republican who sucked up to Obama on the important issues like immigration, taxes and the country's debt.
