    I'm only half listening, but I think Foxnews just indicated it was low turnout... I guess he and his democrat opponent are both professors at the same college. The republican, an economics prof.. I'm not sure what the dem prof teachers..> Probably Womyn studies or so...

    Eric Cantor Dusted in Virginia.

    Gee. They are even feeling this in Los Angeles.

    This is breaking news all over the place. It came as a shock to not just Republicans, but Democrats as well.

    Re: Eric Cantor is Gone

    Must have misheard.. I guess turnout was not low:

    Eric Cantor's Primary Loss to Dave Brat Mean Immigration Reform's Dead | New Republic

    He can’t blame the loss on turnout either: Turnout was greater on Tuesday than it was two years ago.

    Brat had a huge push the other day. I also think the lack of a Democratic primary contributed to it, a lot came out against Cantor.

    If you didn't like Cantor... just wait. Another Ted Cruz just elected. The Tea Party in Congress has one response to anything... No. They don't have alternative ideas or stand for anything. All they do is stand against things.

    This is a sad day for the GOP.

    You know that Virginia is an Open Primary state where anyone, regardless of political affiliation, can vote in any primary? In other words, Democrats could have come out to vote against Cantor in the Republican Primary. That should not be legal. It has to be an infringement on the First Amendment Right of GOP voters that Democrats can vote in their primary, or vice versa. Hell, isn't that what the General Election is for?

    Not one of the professional prognosticators seen this coming.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    That's possible, that is if Virginia has open primaries like we have here in Georgia. VA-7, Cantor was rated solid/safe for november, I wonder if the election of Brat will change that rating?
