Almost everyone is familiar with the most devastating loss for the Professional Political Establishment in the 2014 election cycle, the primary defeat of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor by insurgent patriot Dave Brat.
Fewer people recognize how devastating the loss was for the globalist DC elites who were less than two days away from approving the Gang-of-Eight Amnesty Bill known as “Comprehensive Immigration Reform”.
With the vote count “whipped”, and with enough House votes to pass identified, Speaker John Boehner was set to hold the vote on Thursday June 12th 2014. Cantor was defeated (primaried) Tuesday June 10th, and the “whip count” disappeared almost immediately.
The GOPe vowed to retaliate against Brat. Last week they began to make their moves:
RICHMOND – Longtime Henrico County Sheriff Mike Wade will challenge Rep. Dave Brat for the Republican nomination to represent the 7th District in Congress.
Wade, 59, a former Henrico Republican Party chairman who has served as sheriff for 16 years, filed organizing paperwork for a campaign committee with the Federal Election Commission in December.
The filing puts to rest rumors that have persisted for weeks that Wade would mount a challenge to Brat. (read more)
