Skip to comments.‘Truly stunned’: Eric Cantor getting clobbered in Virginia; Dave Brat shows early lead
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
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.
56-43 with 72% reporting
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.
Woo Freakin’ Hoo! Throw out the Rino’s.
Erick Erickson ✔
so a dead tea party just took out the GOPs Majority Leader? ZOMBIES ARE REAL!!! 6:39 PM - 10 Jun 2014
75% reporting and Cantor is down 13%
Anyone good at math to tell us what Cantor would need to come back?
RINOcumbents .. hunt them down, exterminate the species.
Go TEA go! Rebellion is brewing! Woo hoo! Take America back!
A miracle (kinda like Algebra).
Or a lot of cheating, which Republicans on the whole are just not equipped for.
This is really awesome.
I just fired off an email to my inlaws with the subject Gooooooooooooo BRAT~! Throw the RINO’s out. They are very active in politics from SW VA. Will be interesting to see how they respond.
But I thought the News Media declared the Tea Party types dead and gone??/s
THIS IS MASSIVE! Fox totally in dejection mode. I think we may actually topple Cantor. It is impossible to express how huge this is.
Now we know why he was in favor of amnesty! He needs the votes.
Awesome! Pound sand amnesty traitor geek!
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??
DOWN WITH RINOS!!!
All I can say is, WOW! If this holds it promises to be the biggest upset so far this election season. Now if McDaniel can win in the south.....
The “Tea Party is dead” meme, is dead.
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.
They will do massive damage and take down as many as they can on their way down.
I wonder what is Boner thinking right now? LOL
This may be a harbinger of the 2014 results nationally. Wouldn’t that be something?
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.
CNN and MSNBC: AP calling race, Cantor lost seat
So he has to win 50% of the remaining vote + the 37% you mentioned
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.
Open those polls back up! I demand that you open the polls back up!
He is usually on Fox News during election nights.
Anyone see him yet.
Politico has called it for Brat.
Y e e e e e H a w ! !
(but keeps fingers crossed d:^)
Foxes banner says he has been defeated!
Crying like a little b**ch i’m sure. Lol!!
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.
Cantor was hoping for more illegal alien votes. He forgot, they only vote Democrat....
Maybe we can someone in the position who won’t cry.
This just in.. John Boner, upon hearing the election results,
falls off his bar stool!
