Holy smokes! Eric Cantor loses GOP primary to absolutely unknown, underfunded challenger


The Daily Kos has this story Holy smokes! Eric Cantor loses GOP primary to absolutely unknown, underfunded challenger.

In one of the most shocking primary upsets of all time, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, the second-ranking Republican in the House, has lost to economics professor Dave Brat, a political unknown who was outspent 40-to-1. Cantor ran multiple attack ads against Brat, but Brat successfully made his outright hostility to immigration reform the centerpiece of the campaign, accusing Cantor of supporting “amnesty” and putting him on the defensive.

This does not appear to be a joke, a satire, or an April Fool’s prank.
