Along with popular conservative radio hosts like Mark Levin and Laura Ingraham coming out against him, the fundamental reasons why Senator Lamar Alexander may lose to Joe Carr in the upcoming primary are detailed in this Weekly Standard item.

Eric Cantor Doesn't Mention Amnesty, Guest-Worker Visas in Farewell Speech

Source: Big Government

On Thursday, his last day as House Majority Leader, Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) did not mention amnesty or work visas during his farewell speech on the House floor.  Shockingly, Cantor lost a June 10 primary to Dave Brat largely because of his views on amnesty, and he did not urge his colleagues to move forward on giving amnesty to illegal immigrant children or increase the number of high-tech guest-worker visas. Before his defeat, Cantor was reportedly working o ...
