Eric Cantor’s Opponent Dave Brat Featured on Drudge Report – Making Waves!

David Brat is going for the throat and making waves in his bid to unseat Eric Cantor. And make no mistake, Cantor is worried. There has been a big uptick in the emails I am receiving from Cantor the Congressman (not the Candidate Cantor).  Not to mention the shadows he has following Dave Brat around.

Can you say paranoid?

Dinner in Castle Cantor won’t go down so well if Eric finds out that Dave Brat just made headlines on Drudge. Cantor made the headline too, but in a far less flattering light.

That is pretty good coverage to say the least.

And here is an excerpt from the article that was written by Kenric Ward:

Dave Brat is challenging Rep. Eric Cantor in a Republican primary — and giving the House majority leader a verbal thrashing on immigration.

“Cantor is following the agenda of the Business Roundtable and the Chamber of Commerce — pursuing policies that are good for big business, but come at the exclusion of the American people,” said Brat, an economics professor at Randolph-Macon College.

Brat’s upstart bid against the second highest-ranking House Republican may seem quixotic. But it’s part of a growing national movement to oust GOP leaders who fail conservative litmus tests.

Cantor, in Brat’s view, is flunking badly on border security. Indeed, the congressman even applauded President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address outlining a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants.

On Friday, Cantor said on the House floor that “immigration reform could be an economic boon to this country.”

Brat is having none of it. He calls the imminent GOP cave-in on immigration an exercise in “crony capitalism.”

“It’s incredibly unpopular. It lowers wages, adds to  unemployment, and the taxpayer pays the tab for any benefits to folks coming in,” Brat told Watchdog.org in an interview.

“This is not equal treatment under the law. People who are waiting in line (to immigrate) are fuming.”

Brat asserts that Cantor has lost his way on Capitol Hill after seven terms in office. Once considered a reliable conservative, Cantor, along with other Republican leaders, appears more interested in seeking cooperation with Democrats while courting Hispanic votes this election year.

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