Too bad the polls closed the same time in SC as Virginia. Maybe the RINO Cantor loss would have boosted the anti GOP-e vote had the voters not figured Linda Graham was unbeatable.

The RINO’s in Virginia have turned blue tonight....from holding their breath and stomping their feet upon hearing of the loss of their boy Cantor.

Cantor is probably a friend of Hume. The beltway is an incestuous place.

When Laura was speaking, I heard Hume make an arrogant, gruff remark in background.

He’s pure GOP-E and is Campaign Carl...and the other Karl of Tokyo Rove fame.

NOw RINO Cornyn wishes us to grant amnesty.

I refuse to vote for Cornyn and hopes he goes the way of Cantor in the general election. Perhaps the
tea party will fund its own candidate by then

If he only had enough self respect to quietly leave and get a job in the private sector. Without the revolving door hiting him in the wallet.

OOps there are no jobs equivalent to his pension. Which he will get in perpetuity as well as his family.

When they just showed all 4 men on the panel on Megyn Kelly’s show Britt Hume had his head held down in disgust. I used to have respect for him years ago but now he just seems like an establishment DC insider, which I despise.

Maybe Obama inviting all the children of Central America to come live in Arizona wasn't good timing for Cantor.

Maybe the mainstream media will discover that Cantor losing proves an upsurge of anti-Semitism in the GOP.

The GOP-E Leadership in the US House, (Boehner, Cantor, and Ryan), is always gullible to Obama’s tricks. Consequently, Boehner, Cantor and Ryan, have all pledged to ram through this unpopular Obama Amnesty Bill due to Obama’s illegal decision to flood the USA with children from Mexico and Central America.

It is time to kick the GOP-E out of Congressional Leadership!

Graham's challengers in SC never had a chance of forcing a runoff. Lack of money, organization and effort doomed them from the start. At least they had the gumption to challenge a siting senator.

On the positive side, they did make Graham work for the primary win and spend some money. Maybe even a temporary nudge to the right occurred.

I wonder who’ll be the next Majority Leader. do you suppose the Establishment will try to foist McCarthy on us, or do they try to sneak in someone like Ryan?

Who’s our guy?
