‘Truly stunned’: Eric Cantor getting clobbered in Virginia; Dave Brat shows early lead
Twitchy ^ | 6-10-14 | Twitchy Staff

Posted on 06/10/2014 4:49:44 PM PDT by icwhatudo

Cantor looks cooked to me. Truly stunned. Low turnout+Immigration issue+ story of current border crisis=perfect storm for Brat

snip

Right now, I just don't see where Cantor (R) can make up his 58%-42% deficit. This would be the biggest House upset I've ever seen. #VA07

Yesterday Brat was on Levin. Mark was trying to temper him about the fact he had an uphill battle with Cantor. Mr. Brat was very optimistic. I just hope Cantor doesn’t pull a fraud stunt.

I can’t do much other than pull from afar for Dave. I hope the good folks there clean the floor with Cantor’s RINO remains.

Levin is all over these results today as they get updated. He can’t quite seem to believe it either. It is amazing if it holds.

Well...this is certainly good news, Cantor is one of the Rino’s deeply entrenched with the host of traitors, maybe we will get this sinking ship back to port.

75% reporting and Cantor is down 13%

Anyone good at math to tell us what Cantor would need to come back?

A miracle (kinda like Algebra).

Or a lot of cheating, which Republicans on the whole are just not equipped for.

Goning to try my hand at math (never a good thing lol)

1st 25% 56-43 Brat
2nd 25% 56-43 Brat
3rd 25% 56-43 Brat

So in final 25%, Cantor would need to win 89% just to tie?

Just occurred to me; the RINO’s going down; they will be extremely dangerous i the weeks to come. What do they have to lose; but worse yet, what do they have to GAIN after their “public” life and stepping into their new (purchased?) lives in the private sector by doing favors for their rat friends??

Just a notice to all you RINO's out there....

We, as a conservative group that elected you into office, is getting sick of the 'lip service' that you use to get into office with our votes.

We are working individuals so we do not have time to stand out in front of your headquarters and picket you. We don't have time to follow you around and harass you like would happen with your Democratic brethren.

However, what we DO do is remember the lies and vote accordingly. I myself, and as a group, are SICK AND TIRED of listening to what we want to hear when you are running, and then folding like a card table to the principles that Conservatives thought we were electing.

It will not happen overnight, but we will vote all of your asses out of office. Period. No one puts up with being lied to, and we have long memories.

I am dealing with one in my state now....New Hampshire. Kelly Ayotte said all the right things to get 'into the club', now she just sells out on conservative values and ideas every chance she gets. I am looking forward to getting her out of office as soon as that opportunity presents itself.

The battle continues....and it's a marathon, not a sprint.

Quick calcs here...

53,152 total votes represent 75% of the precincts.

Assuming a straight line spread of votes across precincts, that means there is a total available votes of 70,869.

That leaves 17,717 left to win.

Cantor is behind by 6,532, which is 37% of the remaining votes.

Be aware that Obama will be getting the message also, but not the way we want. He is going to double down and do everything short of busing the illegals in to crash this country faster and sooner.

That is a real possibility with Cantor, as his wife is employed by the amnesty loving chamber of commerce. There's no reason for her to have a job there if Cantor can't deliver.

Win or lose, the RINOs are going to do to us what they’re going to do to us anyway. Cantor out on his arse tonight is a good outcome.

Cantor would have to win 68.4% of remaining vote to sneak by by a few votes. IOW, MORE THAN a reversal of the pattern where Brat is winning consistant at 56%. Ain’t gonna happen

Indeed take heed GOP. We are tired of you acting Democrat lite. We need leadership, we need people who care about our Republic. We need the current border laws enforced. IMMIGRATION REFORM, means you pukes want amnesty. Listen up, the word “comprehensive” means screw the American people. The GOPe will be voted away until there is real leadership.
