RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was defeated Tuesday by a little-known economics professor in Virginia’s Republican primary, a stunning upset and major victory for the tea party.
Virginia voters showed their INTELLIGENCE tonight as they rejected incumbent house majority leader Eric Cantor’s re-election bid.
Cantor epitomized the Republican incumbent inside-the-beltway-I-got-mine-now-I-am-going-to-hold-on-to-my-perks fraternity. The Republican leadership (Boehner-Cantor-McConnell) have insisted on capitulating to the alpha-male Democrats on Capitol Hill, in abject defiance of their grass-roots conservative base. They have repeatedly “assumed the position”, thinking it would protect their cocktail-party invitations with the DC elites and the flow of funds to their executive PACs.
This is nothing less than a stunning repudiation of amnesty – deficit spending – and capitulation to an overreaching imperial Obama administration.
Congrats to the “political novice with little money” Dave Brat.
So do ya still think the Tea Party is DEAD?!! Meet Virginia!

The Tea Party is our only hope to save America. Let’s hope this is just the beginning of an upset greater than 2010 for Congress and we take the Senate and keep the House.
America had a real victory last night. I was curious to hear some pundits say reps like Dave Brat will cause gridlock in Washington. The only way there can be gridlock is if the Democrats refuse to compromise.America has compromised its moral and ethical values, its budget, its national defense, and the law to the liberals. It’s surely time for Democrats to compromise to do what is right and good for America! Education Lady
