Eric Cantor joins a list of prominent Republicans whose political careers were ended “primarily” because of their support for illegal-alien amnesty:
Most recently Texas Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst lost his primary because of amnesty.
Before that, Texas Governor Rick Perry’s weakness on illegal immigration cost him the presidential race.
Senator Dick Lugar (Indiana) lost his seat because of amnesty.
Senator Bob Bennet (Utah) lost his seat in large part because of amnesty.
Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) lost her primary, but won the general in a write-in campaign.
In Nebraska, Governor Dave Heineman won his Republican primary – “one of the most surprising defeats in Nebraska political history” – almost entirely because his very popular opponent, Tom Osborne, supported in-state tuition for illegal aliens.
Heck, Hillary Clinton began her downfall in the 2008 Democrat primaries when she waffled on driver’s licenses for illegal aliens.
And Marco Rubio’s presidential aspirations might die because of amnesty.
Jeb Bush’s too!
When will they learn??
