    I guess the party leaders are learning that you can't count on much any more; but it is strange that an almost solid Rep district would vote the way they did! No wonder they weren't paying that much attention to Cantor's race, even though VA is an open primary State, and hindsight has shown maybe they should have been! And remember, the Clintons worked hard to get their boy McCauliffe elected governor in 2013, too. That's one reason I'm glad Ohio is not an open primary State. If you're registered Repub, that's the ballot you get in the primary, and vice versa, and the people at the voting places have those records. Open voting is only allowed in Presidential elections, which I think is fair.

    Greetings, Pero.

    Incorrect...it shows that a failure to oppose Obama and the Libs will not longer be status quo ..

    The Dems own it now.. no more Cantor to blame.. this is more horrible news for Obama and the Dems.

    Imagine Obama and his Cantor smirk tonite .
    I think with 60,000 to 90,000 new Obama's young illegal aliens crossing over the border after the Obama administration had told America that the borders were secured kills amnesty as long as Obama is in the White House.

    Cantor was between the sheets with Corporate America and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

    It's a start, when will the Democrat voters start doing the same ?

    The GOP majority leader loses to a TEAt and you say DEMs should be worrying.
    I'd say the old guard trying to get Sen. Cochran to the finish line are the ones worrying.

    How do you square that with the FACT that Obama has been labeled the deporter-in-chief.
    You Can'tor have it both ways, ApacheDude .
