WOW "Cantor will go down as the first Majority Leader in US history to lose his primary election" http://t.co/o5zauNjP0n[3]

Although I said I supported @DaveBratVA7th[5] on Twitter, I didn't formally endorse him because I didn't think he could pull it off. #amazing[6]

Eric Cantor's awesomely accurate internal poll had him up 34 points over Dave Brat http://t.co/w07qUmd4PR[8]

Remember when Eric Cantor went to the liberal Main Street Advocacy's "screw the Tea Party" event? In retrospect, not so smart @MainStreetGOP[10]

So about "big money" "buying elections"… pic.twitter.com/k4v6FovWQh[12] #VA07[13]

I mean, no one actually likes Eric Cantor, but I didn’t think they’d actually vote against him.

Hey @EricCantor[16], you got what you deserved tonight. Thanks for nothing. Go get a job lobbying for amnesty, you bum.

Republican consultants are really pissed they’ve invested all this time in ass kissing staffers who suddenly aren’t powerful.

As far as I can tell, Laura Ingraham is the only national figure (And or group) who deserves any credit for helping Dave Brat win.

Dave Brat tells Hannity his race wasn’t Tea Party vs establishment. “I ran on the Republican creed.”
