Chaos erupts at Cantorís election night headquarters after his departure
Washington Post ^ | 6-10-2014 | Laura Vozzella

Posted on 06/10/2014 6:48:37 PM PDT by tcrlaf

As if the political drama were not powerful enough, chaos erupted at the election night headquarters shortly after House Majority Leader Eric Cantor conceded his stunning defeat to tea party backed conservative David Brat.

Cantor addressed his supporters for about four minutes at a suburban Richmond hotel ballroom, then boarded SUV without taking questions from supporters scurrying after him.

Then it got really rambunctious. In the room of downcast Cantor supporters, a new energy suddenly erupted — but not the kind they wanted election night. A group of immigration activists stormed the ballroom, screaming and waving a flag. “What do we want? Immigration reform! When do we want it? Now!”

I’d say they were an election late and many votes short. Never fear however, Obama is going to “phone and pen” it for them.

I bet the fact that Eric lost really upset their plans.

The fact that he scurried off like a little weasel says he was privy to and endorsed their little "tantrum."

that’s the plan, to make us brazil.

I missed Cantor’s concession speech.

Did he voice his support for Brat — you know, in an effort to UNITE THE PARTY and all that?!?! Cuz that’s what conservatives are always told, right? We must join together to fight the “real enemy” the Democrats.

I don't see how any amnesty proponent can complain about trespassers or party crashers.

They're really just undocumented guests...

The burning question is, ‘Now that Cantor’s lost, will he still have to pay those activists as agreed upon prior to election results coming in?’.. LOL

LOL...guess the DNC doesn’t know that their Rent A Mob can’t get to any job on time. So instead of interrupting Cantor’s victory speech, they get there when the clean up has begun. Couldn’t happen to a better bunch.

Since he has nothing to lose now, maybe they want him to get it passed before he goes.

You better believe it, and watch for Cantor-Boehner to go full steam ahead. ANYthing, whatEVER it takes to stick it to conservatives (i.e., Tea Party) they will do, while they still have the means.

A good post, but you're mistaken in one respect. Rubio is of white, European extraction, a pure-blood Spaniard white man.

No, not really. At least not that I heard.

He spent most of the time recapping what he had tried to do while in office.

WHAT? You mean Cantor didn't tell his supporters to move on, go out and help UNITE the PARTY by helping Brat?!? Gee whiz. I just can't believe that. I mean, heck, that's what all good Republicans are SUPPOSED to do, right? UNITE behind the winner?!?! Right?

It’s time for us to demand that the political crooks in elected office obey the law and deport illegals.

No more of this slow motion amnesty pushed by fools like the Bush brothers, Rubio, Ryan and the rest of the Treason Lobby.
