Cantor cruises to victory, poised to become leader in Congress
The results are still coming in, but local Congressman Eric Cantor has posted an expected victory over two opponents in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District. With 70% of the votes counted, Cantor leads Rick Waugh and Floyd Bayne 59-43-7 respectively.
The early returns look good for Republicans taking control of the house and that could mean Cantor will be the next Majority Leader in the House of Representatives.
Cantor’s address to supports from the Hilton in Short Pump, was broadcast live to NBC affiliates across the country. Perhaps an indication of how powerful he is about to become.
