NHDP: Cantor Loss Foreshadows Disaster for NHGOP Ticket

Concord, NH— New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley released the following statement tonight after House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was defeated by Tea Party challenger Dave Brat: 

"Tonight's results out of Virginia confirm what we all know: today's GOP is the party of the Koch Brothers and the Tea Party. This foreshadows bad news for Scott Brown and Walt Havenstein, who will have to spend the next few months pandering to the Tea Party in order to advance their primary politics, all the while leaving them poorly positioned for November. As NH GOP candidates up and down the ticket race to the right to avoid similar primary defeats, NH Democrats will continue to focus on policies that strengthen the middle class and make a difference for New Hampshire everyday."
