Eric Cantor Loses Primary to Tea Party Challenger

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor has officially lost the Republican primary for his House seat to tea party challenger David Brat, according to the Associated Press. Cantor outspent Brat by a big margin, but still suffered a crushing defeat, marking a huge upset for a conservative movement looking to oust Republican establishment types.

Cantor was targeted by conservatives over, among other things, his position on immigration reform. His defeat came as a huge surprise, given how a Washington Post article today led with “A conservative challenger is expected to fall far short of defeating House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) in Tuesday’s congressional primary.” (Source)
