Don’t worry about Eric Cantor, he’ll be fine.

  • $1.4M the size of the sign-on bonus Eric Cantor received for joining a Wall Street bank after resigning from Congress. It’s part of a $3.4 million compensation deal with the investment bank Moelis. Cantor, the former House Majority Leader, left his post after losing a primary earlier this year. Nice cushion. source

I know there’s a lot of long faces here tonight. It’s disappointing, sure. But I believe in this country. I believe there’s opportunity around the next corner for all of us.
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor • Conceding defeat to his Republican primary challenger, David Brat, who managed to beat him Tuesday night despite having a war chest that was a twelfth the size of Cantor’s. It’s the first time a majority leader has lost to a primary challenger since 1899.

President Obama has said that unless he gets a second tax hike in eight weeks, he will be forced to let criminals loose on the streets, the meat at your grocery store won’t be inspected and emergency responders will be unable to do their jobs. These are false choices. We are faced with the negative effects of the sequester because Democrats have not been able to take even the smallest step towards controlling spending.
Rep. Eric Cantor • Painting President Obama as the primary cause of the looming sequester, and resulting budget cuts, which will take effect if Congress doesn’t act by next week. While neither party is particularly popular at the moment, a recent Pew/USA Today poll shows that the GOP is currently eating much of the public blame for the sequester debate, which we don’t imagine sits well with the House Majority. source

First reactions to President Obama’s nomination of Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense…

  • Sen. Inhofe (R-OK): "In the months and years ahead, the Defense Department will be confronted with significant challenges from budget issues to Afghanistan policy. … I am aware of the serious concerns about some of [Hagel’s] policy positions, his record, and some of his comments that have been publicly reported. I will be seeking clarification from him about these concerns as his nomination proceeds." source
  • Sen. McCain (R-AZ): ”I have serious concerns about positions Senator Hagel has taken on a range of critical national security issues in recent years, which we will fully consider in the course of his confirmation process before the Senate Armed Services Committee.” source
  • Rep. Cantor (R-VA): "Recent reporting has made clear that Senator Hagel’s views and inflammatory statements about Israel are well outside the mainstream and raise well-founded doubts that he can be trusted to manage the special relationship the United States shares with our greatest Middle East all." source
  • Barney Frank:With the attack coming out of the right, I hope he gets confirmed.” source

Eric Cantor’s accidental donation confuses, angers many in GOP

  • $25,000 donated to anti-incumbents source

» According to the Virginia Republican, he didn’t realize he would be donating to the Campaign for Primary Accountability (CPA) when he made a deal with Illinois Republican Aaron Schock to aid fellow Illinois freshman Adam Kinzinger’s re-election bid. Kinzinger faces veteran Republican Don Manzullo, now that the two men find themselves representing the same district following recent congressional redistricting. The CPA is an anti-incumbent Super PAC which has targeted a number of Republicans who are up for re-election in November, leaving many inside the GOP wondering just what the House Majority Leader was up to.

Top GOP Congressional figure Eric Cantor just endorsed …
"What I have seen is a very hard-fought primary. And we have seen now that the central issue about the campaign now is the economy,” Cantor said on “Meet the Press” this morning. “I just think there’s one candidate in the case who can do that, and it’s Mitt Romney.” With this statement, the House Majority Leader is now the highest-ranking member of Congress to endorse someone in the GOP primary race.

Eric Cantor is not amused.

Best face of the night.

For most people, it’s harder to frown than smile. For Eric Cantor, it’s the opposite.
