Skip to comments.New Eric Cantor Ad Looks Desperate

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is attacking his GOP primary opponent with a new television ad, a highly unusual move for a sitting member of House leadership that demonstrates he is taking the threat from his right back home more seriously than past months.
The ad criticizes his opponent, Randolph-Macon economics professor David Brat, for a tangential association with former Democratic Gov. Tim Kaine, who proposed raising taxes while he was in office. But a top Virginia official says the association is fleeting at best.
College professor David Brat is running against our conservative congressman Eric Cantor, a narrator reads to kick off the ad. But Brat worked on Democratic Gov. Tim Kaines Council of Economic Advisors while Kaine tried to raise our taxes by over $1 billion on cars, insurance and income. Now, liberal David Brat is running for Congress as a Republican. Liberal college professor? Tim Kaine adviser? Republican? Come on professor, youve got to be kidding.
In 2006, Kaine appointed Brat to the state's Joint Advisory Board of Economists, comprised of academics, businessmen and one member from the Federal Reserve Board. Brat served on the board through the rest of Kaine's term.
Virginia Secretary of Finance Ric Brown, an economist who has served in various capacities for the Virginia government since 1971 and has been appointed by both Republicans and Democrats, said the board had nothing to do with setting tax policy at all.
The charge of the Joint Advisory Board of Economists is to come up with basically a consensus economic forecast for both Virginia and the nation, Brown said in a phone interview.

Cantor is a piece of scum loser. While rarely do we see guys at the top of leadership picked off in a primary, it would be an enjoyable sight to see.
Cantor is trying to lie his way to win.

Will Doormat Republican Cantor keep his new nickname of Sneaky?

Sure looks like Boehner is grooming the right replacement to replace him as another Obama-friendly Speaker of the US House of Representatives!
