The primary was just called on the news – Eric Canter, Republican House Majority Leader just lost to Dave Brat, an economics professor at a small college! This is a big deal… Now, for some fun thoughts:
1. And the dem candidate is also a professor at the same small college! Ooooohhh, think of the faculty meetings!
2. My mind is racing with plots for novels involving faculty backstabbings, actual faculty teas, giggle
According to press reports, Dave Brat is very conservative on immigration. If you haven’t heard about the thousands of unaccompanied children swarming into Texas and now being housed on military bases or put on buses and dropped off in Arizona…. Canter had been willing to contemplate immigration reform. This is sending a very clear signal.
Update: Eric Cantor spent $5 million; Dave Brat just over $100,000. Mmmmm…
