Cantor “Concerned” About Kaine As DNC Chair
We spoke to Rep. Eric Cantor today about a wide range of topics, including the hearing that he hosted yesterday on the economy. With the loss of a few key members of the Republican House Delegation, Mr. Cantor (along with gubernatorial nominee Bob McDonnell) has become one of the most prominent members of the GOP in Virginia.
That is why we asked the Congressman for his opinion on Gov. Tim Kaine‘s appointment to the head of the Democratic National Committee. Cantor told us that with all of the issues facing Virginia, he hopes the Governor can keep his focus.
Here is his exact quote:
“Well certainly I’m concerned, Virginia has any number of challenges before it right now. You know our road networks are in desperate need of repair, obviously we are continuing to grow as a commonwealth, we have needs in the health care arena, the education arena, not to mention over a 3 billion dollar shortfall this year in our state budget, So I am hoping the Governor will have the ability to concentrate on Virginia first, because that should be his priority, he is the chief executive of the Commonwealth.”
I am working to get the video of his quote into the computer, I will share that with you when I do.
