CANTOR LOSES  —  RICHMOND, Va. — It wasn't enough that Eric Cantor spent $1 million in the weeks leading up to the election, when his conservative foe hardly had $100,000 in his campaign coffers.  —  It didn't matter that the House majority leader, 51, branded Dave Brat a liberal hack …

HOUSE MAJORITY LEADER CANTOR DEFEATED IN PRIMARY  —  RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — House Majority Leader Eric Cantor lost in his Republican primary election Tuesday to a little-known economics professor, a stunning upset for the GOP's No. 2 in the House and a major victory for the tea party.

The GOP's habit of eating its own  —  Eric Cantor's defeat in Virginia's GOP primary stunned the Washington political world.  —  But in historical terms, it should not have come as a shock.  House Republicans have been eating their young since the Eisenhower era, and the race has been always to the right.

Why Eric Cantor Lost  —  The death of the tea party has been greatly exaggerated.  House Majority Leader Eric Cantor lost his primary tonight to David Brat, a man who was significantly outspent.  Cantor spent $5 million to Brat's $122,000.00.  —  The media will play up Cantor's loss by claiming it was about immigration.

Eric Cantor Loses Primary in Massive Upset (Video)  —  House Majority Leader Eric Cantor became the first person in American history to lose his primary while holding that position.  He lost Tuesday night to a poorly-funded GOP opponent in the biggest electoral stunner in several cycles.
Paul Mirengoff / Power Line:
Eric Cantor defeated — amnesty suspected  —  Remember those polls that purported to show that most Republicans, and maybe even most Tea Party members, support amnesty and a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants?  I guess the pollsters forgot to survey Republicans in Eric Cantor's district in central Virginia.
