Cantor (R-Va.), who lost his Republican primary last week in a surprise upset
by economics professor Dave Brat, said Sunday he has no regrets about his
campaign or time in office. Now, Cantor said, he just wants to move forward.
"I don't have any regrets, because I
remain focused on the mission that I'm about," Cantor told CNN's Dana Bash
on "State of the Union."
Cantor will step down as majority leader at
the end of July, and serve out the rest of his congressional term outside of a
leadership role. He said on "State of the Union" that he had not yet
determined what he will do next.
He did say, though, that he will vote for
Brat in the upcoming general election.
"I want a Republican to hold this seat,
of course," he said.
Bash asked Cantor about comments by his pollster, John
McLaughlin, whose surveys predicted a win for the majority leader. McLaughlin told
CNN in a memo that he believes Cantor lost because thousands of Democrats voted
in the Republican primary.
"I'm looking forward," Cantor said.
"A lot of folks are going to be interested in that, but to me, the
problems that people in this country are facing are a lot greater than any kind
of setback -- political setback, personal setback -- that I've got, so I really
am very focused on continuing on the mission that I've tried to be about here
in Washington. It's those reform conservative solutions that actually can be
applied to people's problems in the working middle class in this country and
The majority leader said he did not think
there was any one thing that led to his loss. He stands behind his statements
in opposition to comprehensive immigration reform, he added, but still supports
legal status for young undocumented immigrations who came to the U.S. as
children. Immigration became a focus of Cantor and Brat's campaigns in the
final weeks before the election.
"It did, I'm sure, aggravate people on
both sides of the issue, but it is the principled position that I've taken and
I believe it's the right one," he said.
Cantor is the sole Jewish Republican in the House of Representatives,
and Bash asked whether his loss could be partially attributed to anti-semitism.
"I don't ever want to impute that to
anybody," Cantor said.
finish with his political career because he and his two other friends Mitch MacConnel
the Senate Minority Leader and Boehner the Speaker of the Congress audaciously
shoved their dirty middle finger in the Ass holes of the American Middle class and the
poor the Master of all source of political powers.
It was such an
audacious act that had it not been for President Obama these three those who got
caught red handed conspiring during last presidential election to kill 47%
middle class and poor would have been leached to death.
Having got saved
how can he say he has anything to regret?
Yes, at heart of
heart all these three ZIONISTS have one regret that is they could not kill the
American middle class and the poor.
These ZIONISTS never believed that God is
the greatest of all conspirators.
