So Long, Rep. Eric Cantor

Cantor Conservatives

Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA), who is in his seventh term in the United States House of Representatives and fourth year as House Republican majority leader, lost his primary race for reelection on Tuesday. That means Cantor will be out of the House when a new Congress begins in January.

Over the last year, Cantor has earned the attention of Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity with his consistent war position — advocating war against Syria, war against Iran, and war against much of the world.

It seems like a fitting time to look back at Cantor’s time in the House through a collection of RPI articles featuring Cantor’s statements and actions—“Rep. Cantor Steals Condi Rice’s Iraq Lines for Syria” by RPI Executive Director Daniel McAdams from September 3, McAdams’ “Eric Cantor Lies About the Iran Deal” from November 25, McAdams’ “Eric Cantor Girds His Iran War Loins” from January 3, and my article “Eric Cantor Evokes George Washington and Founders to Promote His War Agenda” from February 19.
