In a shocking upset, the Tea-Party Candidate David Brat defeated the incumbent Majority Leader Eric Cantor in the Virginian Republican Primary. Cantor, who outspent his opponent by a 40 to 1 margin, lost the election by ten percentage points. Amazingly, Cantor spent more money on steakhouse dinners than Brat spent on his entire campaign.
