On a conference call, Congressman Cantor made the argument that Allen would be ready to lead on day one and has a proven record of leadership. This did not go unchallenged by call participants as questions were raised on Allen’s lack of enthusiastic support for the Paul Ryan budget plan and his uncommitted stance on the recent debt ceiling deal passed by Congress.
Congressman Cantor emphasized the need for proven leadership and electing a Senator that has already proven himself as a leader. By endorsing Allne, both Cantor and Goodlatte believe the former Governor will be an asset in the fight to bring the US Budget and National Debt under control.
In response to a question on how the TEA Party would receive this endorsement news, Cantor stated that the TEA Party stands for “Taxed Enough Already” a position that he and Goodlatte support and have worked to accomplish, and a position which they firmly believe George Allen also supports.
