The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee reveled in House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's loss in Virginia on Tuesday, and used the defeat to seek funds for the November general election.
"From day one of Obama's presidency, Eric Cantor has used every dirty trick to block the Democratic agenda," the committee said
in an email solicitation. "There are so many big issues we could make progress on without Republicans like Eric Cantor in our way: raising the minimum wage, passing comprehensive immigration reform, student loan reform, and making millionaires and billionaires pay their fair share, just to name a few."
Cantor lost to little-known challenger Dave Brat, an economics professor at Randolph-Macon College who was backed by the tea party.
In the most stunning defeat
of the Republican primary season, Brat garnered 55.4 percent of the vote to Cantor's 44.6 percent.
"Tonight, Cantor has been thrown out by the tea party base that he's kowtowed to at every turn," the DCCC's email said.
"If you're also glad that Cantor's been shown the door, sign our card to let him know," the email says, asking solicitors to click on a link.
