The campaign manager for House Majority Leader Eric Cantor isnt backing down from their new campaign-trail flyer lauding Cantor for fighting against President Barack Obamas amnesty bill.
He stopped the bill when it came out of the Senate, Ray Allen, Cantors campaign manager, told The Daily Caller.
The defender-against-amnesty claim appeared in flyers sent to GOP primary voters near Richmond, Va., two weeks before the vote on June 10. Conservative Republican Eric Cantor is stopping the Obama [and Sen. Harry] Reid plan to give illegal aliens amnesty, says one of the flyers.
But his critics, including primary challenger and economist Dave Brat, are hitting back: Cantors claim has prompted hoots of contempt, some anger and some Bronx cheers from the many activists who have fought the massive push by progressives, media outlets and business groups to double the current inflow of 2 million immigrants and guest workers each year.
7th district votes are not going to fall for these outright lies that Brat is selling, Allen said.
But the flyers suggest that Eric Cantor is scared, said Zachary Werrell, Brats campaign manager.
Cantor said immigration reform was a top priority for 2013, said Werrell, but now hes realizing that voters in his district are overwhelmingly against it, and all of a sudden, hes saying hes against amnesty.

It really is pathetic. Pathetic that so many voters who would normally think of themselves as patriotic, Constitution-believing, conservative Americans would actually believe these outright kabuki choreographed deception campaigns.
They are so disconnected, so uninformed, so uncaring save that they think the mention of the word Republican is all that’s needed. Don’t worry about the small stuff; this guy’s a Republican so that means he’ll fight Democrats, right?
They are pathetic. Pathetic losers just like the ones that vote for Boehner, McConnell, Graham, McCain and all the rest of the Republican ‘gang’ that just want to keep the second-tier power to which they’ve been so accustomed.
