Newsmax: ‘Va. Conservative Blogger Tom White Called the Cantor Defeat’

Ok. I’ll toot my own horn here. Newsmax gave me some major props here. And I didn’t know the story was being published.

The mainstream media is claiming no one could have foreseen Dave Brat’s stunning defeat of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in Tuesday’s Virginia 7th Congressional District GOP primary, but one man did, and detailed it all in a blog post one day earlier.

“Perhaps not since the Chicago Daily Tribune’s infamous ‘Dewey Defeats Truman’ headline has the political press been so badly blindsided by an election result,” Paul Fahri wrote Wednesday in a nuanced mea culpa in The Washington Post.

As Fahri’s “political press” was missing the story, a veteran Virginia conservative activist was writing a startlingly accurate description of just why Cantor was in trouble and just how good the chances were that he could lose.

Tom White, editor of the Virginia Right! blog, is a longtime conservative activist who proudly boasts that he has lived in that state’s Hanover County since 1983.

In an eerily precise post on the site Monday night titled “Predicting Tomorrow’s Dave Brat/Eric Cantor Primary Race,” White mentioned the difficulty in forecasting primary elections before getting right to his point: Cantor’s seat was in danger.

“This race is not easy to predict by polls. We know it is not a landslide for either side. But I promise you, Eric Cantor is nervous and has every reason to be. And Dave Brat should be cautiously optimistic — and has every reason for the optimism,” White wrote.

    I follow this blog site fairly closely and found that the vast vast majority of the blogs here are accurate and right on the mark. And the vast majority of Mr. White’s predictions come to fruition.

    Just days before this election I checked in with Mr. White for his “behind the curtain” analysis and he essentially told me everything you read here plus one more thing.

    There is a “wild card” here that the media has no clue about; but ≈ 90% of the volunteers who were Cantor’s unpaid and very dedicated “worker bees” are now the “worker bees” for The Brat Pack and they are working harder than ever before.

    I exited the conversation thinking this miracle might just happen and the rest is history.

    Tom White is a force to be reckoned with!

    Thanks Tom for standing up and telling it like it is, and many times you said what the “worker bees” knew but did not have a way (or the time then) to say it. You could have caved in and gone with the crowd say said what the “conventional wisdom” would have said. Thanks for helping to keep the worker bees informed on what is going on, a loyal reader to Virginia Right. bzzzzzzzz

    Tom, will you write an article that predicts who will be thrown to the dogs next? Thanks

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