Eric Cantor was one of the leaders of the “Young Guns Program”. The NRCC program basically selected Republican candidates ahead of time. So, in essence, Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy, and Paul Ryan felt that their selection process was more appropriate than the primary process. They sought to circumvent the election process and influence the outcome. They only supported individuals that towed their party line gibberish.
Eric Cantor fancies himself a king maker.
The sad fact is that by endorsing Jeb Bush, Eric Cantor has exposed Jeb Bush as the status quo candidate. Eric should give Rick Santorum a call. Maybe they should go out to lunch and talk about the old days when they were valid DC insiders. Nobody cares what Eric Cantor thinks about anything. Welcome to insignificance.
