Jimmy Barrett, program director at WRVA
in Virginia and host of "Richmond's Morning News," joined Ed Berliner on "Midpoint" on Newsmax TV
on Wednesday to discuss his thoughts on Dave Brat's stunning upset of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor.
"To say that everyone is a little bit surprised would be a little bit of an understatement, Barrett said.
"I think Eric Cantor lost his eye on the ball quite a while ago when it comes to representing the 7th Congressional District, of which I happen to be a resident," he said.
"Once he became House Majority leader, the feeling was in the district that he spent more of his time running around the country supporting other candidates and doing the work of that particular office and was not that available for his own constituents."
