Eric Cantor, House Majority Leader, has lost the Virginia Republican Primary to Tea Party opponent David Brat. Brat lead a campaign against Cantor deeming him too moderate to accomplish the right-wing agenda. Even more shocking is that Cantor raised $5.4 million to Brat's meager $200,000. A House Majority Leader, since the position's 1899 creation, has never lost the primary.
