Cantor Gets Endorsement
As we settle in to watch Bill Clinton’s speech in Denver, this is worth noting. The influential conservative blog RedState today named local Congressman Eric Cantor as their choice for John McCain’s running mate. Generally Conservative bloggers have had little sway with the McCain camp, but there has been as much talk about Cantor and McCain at this point as there was about Kaine and Obama.
Our newsroom hasn’t officially developed Cantorastaria yet, but if this continues who knows? According to Drudge Report, McCain has already picked his running mate, so things could only get worse. After the jump, I’ve posted some of RedState’s case for Cantor.
Above all, though, Cantor is a good man – ethical, motivated and hard working. He is the kind of choice who best represents the face of the conservative movement in the decades to come. We would relish the opportunity to seem him in a debate with Joe Biden, and we have no doubt that he would win.
