Eric Cantor Loses Virginia Republican Party Primary

US House Majority Leader Eric Cantor has lost a Virginia Republican Party primary election to a challenger from the hard-right Tea Party movement. Little-known economics professor David Brat defeated the second-ranking House of Representatives member 56%-44%. Mr Brat’s shock victory exposed conservative dissatisfaction with Mr Cantor, who was first elected in 2000. Mr Cantor had been widely favored to win, having raising significantly more money than Mr Brat.
