While Cantor sipped, voters sent a message

Those looking to explain Rep. Eric Cantor's stunning loss on Tuesday need look no further than the report in the Washington Post that "he spent the morning at a Starbucks on Capitol Hill, holding a fundraising meeting with lobbyists while his constituents went to the polls."

Displays of such arrogance are rarely rewarded by those who are being taken for granted. While Cantor was working to ascend even higher in the GOP House leadership, his constituents were clearly making other plans.
