    Got this in the mail today. Says nothing about Dave Brat who I guess was late in getting rated "AQ".
    AQ - A pro-gun candidate whose rating is based solely on the candidate's responses to the NRA-PVF Candidate Questionnaire and who does not have a voting record on Second Amendment issues.

    Don't trust NRA ratings ... he's running for office? Call him up and ask him questions...

    I don't see where he pushed to nix the GCA of 1934....

    A+ means what? I want an A+++ guy.

    Agreed.

    But if one must look at POL ratings I take Gun Owners of Americas ratings over the NRA any day of the week.

    Actually Grape, Dave Brat did return the survey (at least according to a June 2 VCDL Alert:

    ************************************************** ***********
    1. Cantor seems to be dodging the VCDL survey
    ************************************************** ***********

    When contacting the Cantor campaign about returning the VCDL Candidate Survey, some of
    our members have been getting a copy of an NRA endorsement letter for Cantor.

    I’m sorry, but that simply is NOT good enough. We need our survey returned so we know
    exactly what Cantor plans to do in the future.

    Reading the NRA endorsement letter, it looks like Cantor didn’t even return the NRA
    survey, as there was absolutely no mention of a survey. I believe the NRA was looking
    for an excuse to endorse Cantor without the survey and did just that. It’s no secret
    that the NRA loves incumbents. While NRA B, C, D, and F ratings are pretty accurate, the
    same cannot be said of their A ratings. Sometimes they are indeed earned and other times
    they are used to curry favor with a candidate.

    So let’s continue to contact Cantor’s campaign to encourage him to return the VCDL
    Candidate Survey. Considering that Cantor has voted for gun control in the past while a
    Delegate in Richmond (One Handgun a Month, Striker-12 gun ban), we cannot take for
    granted he will not do so in the future. It is important that we get his answers to our
    survey.

    Cantor’s opponent, Dave Brat HAS returned his VCDL survey and did so very pro-gun.

    If you live in the 7th Congressional District, please contact Eric Cantor and urge him to
    return his VCDL survey immediately. And don’t accept any platitudes about Cantor
    supporting the Second Amendment or an NRA endorsement letter instead of a VCDL Candidate
    Survey.

    If Cantor is too busy to return his survey, then gun owners could end up being too busy
    to vote for him in the primary on June 10th.

    You can contact Cantor using this email address:

    eric@cantorforcongress.com

    Or you can call Cantor on his Congressional telephone line: 202-225-2815 or his campaign
    phone number: 804-358-6160

    Urge Cantor to return his VCDL candidate survey immediately.

    To thank Dave Brat for sending in his survey very pro-gun, you can contact him using his
    email address:

    dave@davebratforcongress.com

    Or call him at his campaign phone number: 804-496-8214

    "Consistently opposed all attempts ... "

    I got one of those, too.

    "Consistently opposed all attempts ... "

    What a lie. I guess Cox doesn't care about Eric's voting record in the House of Delegates.

    “I’m out here for one reason, and one reason only: To vote against Eric Cantor,” said Jim Rhodes, 70, who was voting at Byrd Middle School in the Tuckahoe District of Henrico County.

    If the fall election is between Brat and a Democrat, he can’t say how he’ll vote because he’ll have to review the candidates’ positions, he said. If the fall election is between Cantor and a Democrat, he’ll vote Democrat, he said.

    Rhodes added, “He looks out for himself, and doesn’t look out for his constituents.”

    Light turnout at my polling place about 8am this morning. In fact, I was the only voter there... and the poll workers indicated that only a couple had been there before me.

    Let me know who votes for Cantor and I'll make sure we send you a complementary bus load of fresh illegals from Texas.
    The Border is 500 miles south of Dallas, but I'm sure we'll be getting a bunch of them up here in the next few weeks.

    Politico calls it... Cantor Loses.

    -----------------------------------
    Eric Cantor loses House seat

    RICHMOND, Va. — David Brat, a local economics professor, is beating House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in Tuesday’s Republican primary contest with more than half of the vote in.

    A Cantor (R-Va.) defeat would be the most shocking primary result in years, and would halt one of the most meteoric rises in House Republican politics.

    Brat had an early lead of 56.47 percent to 43.53 percent with nearly 56 percent of the vote in, according to the Associated Press.

    Cantor’s supporters were gathered at a Westin here in Richmond — they watched the results on a projector, but the screen turned off as the Brat vote edged up. Cantor arrived before 8 p.m. and was whisked upstairs.

    Et tu...

    Remember when Kilgore ran for governor against Kaine and thumbed his nose at the VCDL because he was endorsed by the Lairds Of Fairfax? It would seem thumbing ones at VCDL, just gets snot on your finger. It certainly doesn't help you get elected. Isn't that right, former representative Cantor?

    Simple answer

    Between Republican voters being fed up with little Eric not listening to their complaints, the Democrats that crossed over voted against him because they didn't have to vote for their own candidate and the groups that voted for ANYONE BUT Cantor, it was no race at all.

    Now the Democrats have to find somebody to run. LOL Good luck with that.

    Voters in the 7th are sick of Eric, but not enough to elect a Democrat !

    They already have their candidate Taz and he is a non politician and teaches at the same college as Brat. The two are dead even on qualifications.

    This is going to be interesting election but remember, this area is solid republican so if Brat doesn't shoot himself in the foot ....as Republicans are famous for doing, Brat wins.

    Oh the times they is a changing.

    Dave Brat needs a clear/simple/easy to understand message and it needs to be unwavering.
