Eric and Diana Cantor
Tom Donohue – President of The U.S. Chamber of Commerce – aka Diana Cantor’s boss.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce 2014 goals:
Recently – […] NRSC Executive Director Rob Collins said in a statement that the committee will “continue to fully support Thad Cochran.” And the heavy-spending U.S. Chamber of Commerce signaled a similar commitment; one of its top political officials, Rob Engstrom, tweeted that the business lobby will “stand by Senator Cochran.” (link)
LAST NOVEMBER – […] Sixteen months ago, mustering support from tea party activists and Christian conservatives, the attorney general of Virginia, Ken Cuccinelli’s, backers forced a convention, instead of a primary. This worked around the establishment control and wrestled the nomination away from establishment favorite Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling.
Bolling was the chosen “next-in-line” favorite guy of every Republican party insider. Upon losing the nomination, Bolling did what all establishment Republicans do when they are defeated, Bolling refused to endorse Cuccinelli. Joining him were numerous establishment Republican mayors and numerous former Republican legislators.
The GOP establishment machine decided to do what they do best, burn down the house rather than give up the keys upon ideological eviction.
According to the Washington Post review: Four years ago, McDonnell’s largest single donor other than Republican Party organizations was the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which spent $973,000 on his campaign. This year, the chamber gave Cuccinelli nothing. (link)
