Cantor to be new Majority Whip?
The National Review online is reporting that Congressman Cantor appears to have the necessary 116 votes to be the Majority Whip.
Given the increasingly bad press the GOP caucus has been getting over the Abramoff scandal, I'll be suprised if Blunt is able to hold on to the post, given his close ties to DeLay. The real question is: What moves can Cantor (and whomever is elected Majority Leader take to help distance the majority of the caucus from the few bad apples ruining it for everyone?
Either way, congratulations to another rising star from the Commonwealth.
