It was that kind of day for Eric Cantor. Debbie Wetlaufer was hard at work at the Lee Davis precinct in Hanover County during yesterday’s primary election. This young man was representing Eric Cantor and, well, he was a lot like the Maytag repairman. Not because Cantor wasn’t broken. But because he was beyond repair and in need of replacement.
While Debbie worked tirelessly as the people came up to vote, nobody really wanted to hear about Eric Cantor. Most of Hanover voted 70% or better for Dave Brat.
I expect Cantor and his supporters will have a lot of time to rest now.
And by the way, this young man was a paid Cantor worker brought in from Northern Virginia – and does not live in Virginia.
And Debbie Wetlaufer is a former Cantor volunteer who, like many of us, had grown tired of Eric Cantor.
But if you had to tell the story of Eric Cantor’s defeat, this picture captures the essence of that defeat.
Great shot, Deb!
