AP just called the race for Brat in the VA-7 race.
But, but, but....they said the Tea Party was dead!!!!
Thank you voters of VA7!!!! GOP establishment, take note!
Who wants to bet the NRCC does everything in it’s power to make the Democrat win in that race?
OMG! Yes, Carl Cameron was saying a bit ago on Fox that the Tea Party hasn’t been winning anything lately (he knows better than that!)
EAT CROW, CARL!!!!!
WOOO-HOOOO this is soooo sweet! Cantor is SUCH a total WEASEL!!!
Cameron calling Cantor a conservative?!?!
Imagine what will happen as more of the disgusting mess at the border comes out.
Let's hope it sends a message to sitting Rinos that they better start voting conservative or they're next. Also, I hope it sends a message to the GOPe that IT better fall in line and support these folks with cash in the general election, and not withhold it as punishment.
Oh...Todd Also stated that immigration reform is DEAD.
Although I am not that familiar with Brat, I would say he did not run his campaign as badly as Bevin did. Bevin had some flaws and although McConnell does look likeToby the Turtle he is a real SOB to run against.
The Tea Party will live as long as America does.
-— Cameron calling Cantor a conservative?!?! -—
I’ve listened to him enough to know he sucks. He”s just like Mike Wallace’s kid.
I’m curious too. I don’t know anything about him, and the only thing people here seem to like is that he is anti-immigration. I can’t believe that this is his only policy, however.
He’s an economics professor, so he might not be your usual one-trick amateur who has gained favor for one particular position, and instead might actually be a solid candidate.
Cantor seemed to have a lot of potential, being intelligent, conservative, and young. But he just never really connected with the economic reality of his constituents in a lot of ways (an odd thing, since that was his specialty) and then he somehow fell in with the Boehner wing.
I hope David Brat turns out to be what Cantor could have been. I guess we’ll find out.
Out of work America is going to PO’ed over this amnesty crap.
Now, if we could only get rid of Graham
Tis true indeed.
Thank you Mark Levin! Mark you are truly the great one. Mark Levin has been all over Cantor’s ass. I remember watching Cantor applauding like a sea lion at Sea World when 0bama was pushing amnesty in the state of the union show.
Levin is also raising the possibility of Kentucky republicans letting McConnell lose to the Democrat. The GOP might not need McConnell to take the senate majority.
The picture on Drudge that accompanies this story is simply epic! Shows Obama putting his arm around Cantor! I love Drudge’s sense of humor! :-D
I think we all needed a little good news!
As far as I know, Bevin made one and only one mistake-—that of being at a cockfight or something. We lost a fine candidate with that, regardless of reason.
Also, McConnell, whatever you may think of him, has brought towering pork back to Ky.
So far. 2 GOP incumbents have been knocked out by Tea Party guys. Cantor, the one in Texas(Can’t remember his name) and Thad Cochran will be the 3rd. Loving every minute of this.
Ingraham has been equally vociferous. Annoying at times but all’s well that ends well.
Just heard Campaign Karl say, "Now, the Tea Party will demand to be heard." Hell, they are the PEOPLE. Why should they not be heard? They are the PEOPLE.
OH ITS TRUE..HAPPY DANCE!!!!!
Karl Cameron is a moron, always has been..to him any Republican is considered a “Conservative” he probably thinks Karl Rove is a Conservative
Okay, Cantor, time to come to the microphone and throw your support behind Dave Brat. C’mon, Eric, you know how this works. Republicans MUST UNITE in order to defeat the “true enemy”, right?!?! RIGHT, Eric?!?! Show us how it’s done!
C’mon workerbee, you know how this works! The GOPe only do this when a Democrat beats us...like Obama! No such graciousness is extended to those Tea Party/Conservative types! :-D
Agreed. I was very impressed with Cantor initially.
Then he seemed to sucked into the same Washington vortex that has grabbed other politicians and he came out the other side with a lot of positions that are opposed by the mainstream
AMEN to that!
Indeed, you can see how annoyed Carl Cameron is, which is why he mentioned a write in campaign.
We ought to mail him tea bags
I note they always assign him to the RINO in the GOP race.
Unfortunately, it looks like SC has bought Gayham’s BS hook, line, and sinker. He is at 60% right now. Unless that’s all the state capital, he’ll win.
Smoke em if you got em Boehner!
Wow, just wow!
“Indolence is sweet, and its consequences bitter.”
He might try to run as a write in candidate out of spite..like that b*tch Murkowski did in Alaska, I wouldn’t be surprised
If the GOPe isn’t able to learn from this, real Republicans do NOT want “comprehensive immigration reform” aka amnesty, then they are dumber than I thought.
Our Tea Party is alive and well.
same here... i was hopeful at first... but the last few years he really lost his way... seemed to go along with Boehner on everything...
This just reaffirms to me that the governor’s race was stolen. Thank you Lord for this victory!
FOX news says it’s good for Democrats because Hispanics will hatehatehate those wascally wascally wepublicans.
This too good to be true, something is up and it will be huge and not good for our side...in short: “What’s the catch” for this win.
LOL, you are EVIL and I LOVE it!
Back when, I thought I would like Eric Cantor from things that I'd heard. But I saw him do an interview (with a relatively friendly interviewer) and he NEVER gave a straight answer. I was disappointed that he was such as weasel then, and he has only gotten worse since.
so who now is the Majority Leader?
We need the weepy Boehner picture posted...STAT!
“Oh...Todd Also stated that immigration reform is DEAD.”
Maybe not. Obama may try his, ‘I’ve got a pen’ routine on Amnesty.
But if he does, Nov will be an anti-Dem tsunami.
ABC Radio News had this story at the top of the last hour delivered in shock: "This may be hard to believe, but..."
2010 was a missed opportunity for the country and the republicans misread the message the voters were trying send in 2010.
If they had had more courage and opposed Obama the way voters wanted them to, Republicans would never gave gotten blown out the way they did in 2012
Will his loss prevent him from pushing forward amnesty this year?
Hume: The Republican Party can not ignore the Tea Party.
Beyond 2014, they HAVE to find a way to make a peace with the two wings of the party.
