Jim Rubens, Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, released the following statement regarding the electoral victory of Dave Brat over U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in yesterday's primary in Virginia:
"Eric Cantor's defeat is an air raid siren loud enough to be heard even through the Washington establishment's tin ear. Voters are fed up to their eye teeth with career politicians busy feathering their own nests and who have forgotten about their constituents. Their river of campaign money will not defeat the candidate who has built the grassroots support. With the wave of endorsements we have received over the past weeks, combined with the substantial independent activity supporting the Rubens campaign, our fully funded, fully staffed campaign is positioned to win in September, and by a margin that will demonstrate popular disgust with Washington career politics."
