How did Cantor, who had locks on his re-election, lose?
The TEA Party was AWOL Brat could not even get them on the phone. Brat had no money, thousands compared to Cantor’s millions. But, Brat won in a land slide. Who was on Brat’s team? Ann Coulter, Mark Levin, and Laura Ingraham were all in Brat’s camp. Voters heard their endorsement day and day out on Talk Radio. While the TEA Party was not present, it was TEA Party ideals that won the day for Brat. It was Tea Party ideals that Talk Radio was putting on the air. It was time to turn out the Republican elites. It was time to return America to the people, and is not time for amnesty for illegals.
This is going to have a long term impact on the remaining run-off elections. Tea Party ideals are still strong in the people that Washington is ignoring. Immigration reform is dead. Stay Tuned.
