The number two-ranked Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives now needs a new job:
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor lost in his Republican primary election Tuesday to a little-known economics professor, a stunning upset for the GOP’s No. 2 in the House and a major victory for the tea party. Cantor, viewed as a possible successor to House Speaker John Boehner, was taken down by a political novice with little money named Dave Brat.
If the flood stage is to crest and have any chance to recede, there are 434 other Representatives who need to be ‘taken down by a political novice’ this year. Such ‘novices’ are also needed for more than 35 Senate seats.
It’s up to you, America. “Get ‘em skeered and keep the skeer on ‘em.”
