    I voted for Sarvis, he is running for Senate this year against Warner and Gillispie. You all have Hunt down there running for Governor...correct?

    Re: Eric Cantor is Gone

    So far, all I've seen is low voter turn out, or Dems put in the fix -- how about people are tired of the Establishment and want something different?

    Cantor was crap. Pure, unadulterated crap. He was spineless as only the worst Democrats know how to be. He had no leadership qualities and his ideas were dumb as doo doo.

    THAT is why he lost...

    Like the Democrats don't have enough nuttery of their own. Like Obama and clan has proved to be a complete failure. Talk about idiots.

    and what do you think the voters are getting with this person who NO ONE has ever heard of on the republicans side, much less the public in general?

    a democratic win in november!!

    Cantor was the same shade of crap two years ago, and he carried that district 58-41.

    Cantor was also perceived as a deal cutter on Obamacare.

    I haven't.. But here is CNN"s link:

    With 97% of precincts reporting from the Richmond-area district, Cantor trailed Dave Brat 56% to 44%, according to the Virginia Secretary of State's website. Turnout was low.
    So, I have no clue...
