In case you haven′t heard by now, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor lost to Tea Party challenger Dave Brat in yesterday′s GOP primary election. Virginia was just one of five states which held primary elections yesterday, but the results of this campaign certainly has national significance. Despite being outspent by Cantor 5-to-1, plus having the whole weight of the Republican Establishment against him, economist Dave Brat defeated Eric Cantor soundly by more than 10 points. The 55-44 win in the 7th Congressional District, which includes Richmond, had a high turn out rate. Many pundits are speculating that the reason for Eric Cantor to lose was due to the immigration reform issue. That Dave Brat ran a fear campaign, based on Cantor allegedly being in favor of amnesty for illegal immigrants. But was that the case? Was it the only reason?
