DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s Statement on House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s Primary Defeat

Washington, DC – DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz issued the following statement today on House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s primary defeat:

"Tonight's result in Virginia settles the debate once and for all - the Tea Party has taken control of the Republican Party. Period. When Eric Cantor, who time and again has blocked common sense legislation to grow the middle class, can't earn the Republican nomination, it's clear the GOP has redefined 'far right.' Democrats on the other hand have nominated a mainstream candidate who will proudly represent this district and I look forward to his victory in November."
