As many of you will remember Eric Cantor made a serious mistake.
He turned his back on the people.
This is what happens when you ignore the people.
Never underestimate the power of the grassroots: that’s the lesson Rep. Eric Cantor has learned. The Associated Press has called the race between Cantor and his Tea Party challenger and the current House Majority Leader- the second most powerful Republican in the House- has lost his primary!
Tea Party challenger David Brat has faced an uphill battle in challenging Cantor, an entrenched establishment Republican who is not only well-connected within the GOP, but serves in the Republican leadership as the House Majority Leader.
At the end of March, Brat, an economics professor, only had $40,000 in funds, according to first quarter FEC filings. Cantor has $2 million.
