Who wants to bet the NRCC does everything in it’s power to make the Democrat win in that race?

F Chuck Todd claims it's because of low turnout lol.
But he did point out the coverage of the mass of illegal children did make a last minute change up.

Imagine what will happen as more of the disgusting mess at the border comes out.

Victory is sweet. This truly was as major upset. Outspent something like 8 to 1

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.

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 rumor of the Tea Party being dead was greatly exaggerated.

The Tea Party will live as long as America does.

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.

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.

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.

There was a time when Cantor was a decent right-of-center republican. He simply lost his way and got caught up in the power and oligarchy.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Good riddance!!

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.

Yup.

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

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.
