How Eric Cantor Sabotaged Himself

Stashed in: Republicans, Politics

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:

Democrats nationally were already gloating about the results on Tuesday night. In a statement, DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz said, "Tonight's result in Virginia settles the debate once and for all - the Tea Party has taken control of the Republican Party. Period. When Eric Cantor, who time and again has blocked common sense legislation to grow the middle class, can't earn the Republican nomination, it's clear the GOP has redefined 'far right.'

But in most primaries the tea party lost. 

So we can't really make a generalization about this. 

Maybe it just says that Virginians were tired of one bad obstructionist career politician, and were willing to try any change vs more of the same.

Yeah, that's the main takeaway I get from this.
