During the GOP primary race for Virginia’s 7th district, Dave Brat pledged to fight for term limits, and he’s already delivered on that promise. Rep. Eric Cantor will be out after six terms, and that has caused “chaos in the marble halls” as the entrenched incumbency realizes that the “auto-renew” button for another term doesn’t always work.

Check out this comparison of campaign spending:

One measure of the extraordinary defeat could be seen in the candidate’s finances. Since the beginning of last year, Mr. Cantor’s campaign had spent about $168,637 at steakhouses compared with the $200,000 his challenger, David Brat, had spent on his entire campaign.

Cantor’s internal poll was way off the mark, and his pollster is blaming that on an unexpected number of Democrats voting in the open primary. Why they believe Dem voters would have an interest in replacing Cantor with somebody expressly opposed to their amnesty push is anybody’s guess.
