Eric Cantor lost by a landslide to a virtually unknown challenger. In a race that no one thought he could lose, Cantor became the first sitting Majority Leader in U.S. History to lose in his own primary. The media did not think the race was even worth covering, so they did not bother sending anyone to do exit polls of voters. The winner, Dave Brat, explained on his website why he won.
Brat’s website boldly declares, “Dave believes that we need to secure the border before addressing immigration reform. Dave is opposed to amnesty.” He sharply contrasted his position with Eric Cantor, who favored amnesty for most illegal aliens. Cantor’s support of amnesty for kids, which Brat sharply criticized, has been heard loud and clear south of the border. Tens of thousands of children from Central America have been swarming over our border, giving Homeland Security a colossal problem. Every candidate running for office should remember that amnesty is not the answer for our immigration problem.
