UPDATE: Goodlatte holds meeting with Shenandoah Valley tea party leadership after Cantorís loss

UPDATE: Congressman Goodlatte’s office responded to this post: “Congressman Goodlatte requested this meeting with SVTPP in May, well before the June 10th primary, as part of his continued outreach to groups throughout the Sixth District. The headline of your post is quite misleading, making it look like the meeting was requested in response to Eric Cantor’s loss, which is not the case.”

The Shenandoah Valley Tea Party Patriots (SVTPP) reported in their June 29 newsletter that they were asked by Congressman Bob Goodlatte (R-6th) to meet to air their concerns, an hour-long event that took place on June 17, just seven days after Majority Leader Eric Cantor lost his reelection race. The tea party newsletter noted:

"Congressman Goodlatte had requested the meeting in order to hear from the Leadership matters the Organization considered important, as well as thoughts and recommendations."

(SNIP)

- Rick Downs noted the SVPTT’s “… frustration with the lack of border security, the failure to not capture and deport illegal aliens, and Obama’s use of Executive Orders to deliberately bring in illegal aliens and provide them amnesty.”

I think Goodlatte only has a Libertarian against him which is probably good to be able to at least spook him one on one. Maybe the rats will run a candidate to split the vote and help protect ihm.

Yeah, the TEA party is dead all right, which is why this pro-amnesty Congress critter is running to the Virginia branch with hat in hand. BTW, just for reference:

House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte Ready to 'Move Now' on Amnesty Legislation

I hope he gets more than he bargained for from this meeting.
