As the final days wind down before the Republican Primary tomorrow Eric Cantor is now trying to strike fear in the hearts of Republicans by falsely claiming that Dave Brat is encouraging Democrats to vote in the Republican Primary tomorrow, which is completely false. The irony is that Eric Cantor will be to blame for any Democrat votes tomorrow.
Dave Brat has been outspent 25 to 1. Eric Cantor has used millions of dollars to push a completely false narrative through mail, TV, and radio that Dave Brat is a “liberal college professor” who worked for Democrat Governor Tim Kaine. Now he is discovering that his lies might be coming back to bite him. Why?
Well, the Democrats did not have a candidate to run against Eric Cantor in November, until their last-minute decision this week. After millions in TV advertising from Eric Cantor bemoaning his “liberal” challenger who is aligned with Tim Kaine, Democrats now think their best shot is to vote in the Republican Primary tomorrow to upset Eric Cantor, because they believe the lies being propagated by Cantor.
The irony is that Dave Brat is the tea party favorite because of his focus on reducing the debt, cutting the spending and eliminating the pervasive corporate cronyism that has corrupted our Party. He understands the importance of reforming entitlements and repealing Obamacare. He is pro-life, pro-2nd amendment and pro-rule of law. Brat believes that less power should be concentrated in Washington DC and more power should be concentrated with YOU.
Glenn Beck expressed his strong support of Dave Brat on his radio show today. Brat also has the support of Laura Ingraham, Ann Coulter, Doc Thompson, Mark Levin.
Polls that are almost two weeks old show that Cantor has somewhere between 52-62% of the vote. Brat has a good chance of pulling an upset tomorrow given the momentum that is on his side, despite being outspent by millions. We will know tomorrow how much Brat has managed to close the gap, but anything under 60% for Cantor tomorrow will be a significant blow for a Majority Leader who is used to getting 80% of the vote…especially when you have outspent your opponent by millions.
