House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) was lost his re-election bid yesterday in a major upset by Tea Party candidate David Brat.  Cantor has been in office since 2001 and was considered the frontrunner to be the next Speaker of the House.  In acknowledging his defeat last night Cantor said, “It’s disappointing sure, but I believe in this country, I believe there’s opportunity around the next corner for all of us. So, I look forward to continuing to fight with all of you for the things that we believe in for the conservative cause, because those solutions of ours are the answer to the problems that so many people are facing today.”
