“Coveted Endorsements” Bring Down Eric Cantor

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s decisive defeat in yesterday’s primary says a lot about the shrinking relevance of so-called “coveted endorsements” from insider Republican groups.

Cantor had support from all of the usual RINO suspects: the Chamber of Commerce, the NRA, the National Association of Realtors, and others. Yet instead of helping him, all these endorsements did was make him look like an out of touch insider and a pawn of lobbyists.

Endorsements actually played a bigger role in this race than most people realize.

Outspent nearly 26 to 1, Dave Brat relied on endorsements from Tea Party groups and conservative media figures to raise his profile and propel him to victory.

    Endorsements from the HA elected Reps proved to be worthless as well:

    Del. CHRIS PEACE, Del. BUDDY FOWLER, and HA BOS SEAN DAVIS just days before the big election threw a huge FUND Raiser picnic for ERIC CANTOR. All three continued to support him after admitting that they knew he was lying. Maybe they should ask for their money back.

    HA BOS ANGELA K. WICEK intro’d Brat as a “Conservative Professor” so she obviously knew Cantor was lying as well and still endorsed him.

    HA BOS BUCKEY STANLEY proudly wore a Cantor sticker while working the Cantor tent and following him around at the Ashland Strawberry faire.

    What does this say about these folks integrity?

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
