The Tea Party Lives

From Fox News:
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.
Brat, a Princeton graduate and seminar student who teaches at Randolph-Macon College, a small liberal arts school north of Richmond, attempted to downplay the Tea Party vs. the Washington establishment narrative about the race.  http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/06/10/house-majority-leader-eric-cantor-loses-virginia-gop-primary-ap-reports/
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.
