Open thread: Tonight’s the night we retire Eric Cantor and Lindsey Graham; Update: Cantor in deep trouble early; Update: Cantor loses? Update: AP calls it for Dave Brat

posted at 6:31 pm on June 10, 2014 by Allahpundit

I know that headline’s egregiously incorrect, I just … wanted to experience it. Just once.

There is, I suppose, a slim chance that Grahamnesty could lose tonight, if by “lose” you mean “finish just shy of an absolute majority and end up in a runoff.” That would give tea partiers a glimmer of hope that South Carolinians, forced to make a binary choice in a few weeks between Graham and any other Republican in the country, would choose correctly. They won’t, though. Read this post from a few months ago to see why. Graham, to his credit, took nothing for granted in his reelection bid. He pulled every lever of power he has to protect his seat. In fact, aside from the occasional burbling about impeachment to reassure conservatives that he’s kinda sorta One Of Us, the most striking thing about his campaign is how little pandering he’s done to tea partiers. As he said himself, “I didn’t back off from being me.” That’s how confident he is of winning this race, all of his amnesty/ultrainterventionist baggage notwithstanding. The founder of a tea-party group in Columbia, South Carolina, predicts that he’s going to win the nomination outright tonight, even though he’s facing no less than six different challengers who could, in theory, force a runoff without any one of them reaching double digits. I think that’s right. In fact, I’m going to guess he takes 60 percent. Easily the tea party’s lowest moment this year, the McConnell/Bevin race included.

As for Cantor, people like Laura Ingraham and Mickey Kaus have been fighting the good fight on air and online for weeks in trying to drum up interest in his challenger, Dave Brat. For good reason: This race has, to some extent, become a referendum on amnesty, particularly Cantor’s enthusiasm for the sort of DREAM amnesty that’s now created a humanitarian crisis at the border. The better Brat does, the sterner the warning to House Republicans that an amnesty this summer could be painful this fall. Brat’s done a nice job making Cantor sweat, forcing him to spend more and fight dirtier — replete with a few well-placed bald-faced lies — than anyone expected. Realistically, though, an unknown candidate’s not beating the House majority leader in a primary. No undecided voter is going to forfeit the influence their district has in the House right now in order to roll the dice on Brat. The best we can hope for is a race that’s closer than expected, so that the GOP House caucus sits up and takes notice, but I think we’re going to end up disappointed here too. I’m guessing Cantor takes 65-70 percent, capping a glorious night for fans of immigration reform.

Politico and RCP will have the returns as they come in, although your best bet is Ace’s Decision Desk crew. The polls in South Carolina and Virginia close at 7 p.m. ET.

Update: I’m cooking up some tasty crow to feast on. Eric Cantor is in on life support early in VA-7.

The House majority leader could be going down — in a primary. Biggest House upset ever?

Update: He’s not closing the gap. This is really happening.

Media coverage of young illegals pouring over the border in Texas the past few months, whether induced by DREAM and DACA or not, may have ended up killing him. Show of hands, House Republicans: Who’s up for passing amnesty this summer now?

Update: Harry Enten of FiveThirtyEight thinks Cantor is dunzo. Am I awake?

Update: Election expert Dave Wasserman says it’s over:

Update: Cantor outspent Brat by about 14 to one over the last few weeks. I’m honestly speechless. This is a political earthquake.

Can we retire the “tea party is dead” storyline now?

Update: No one saw it coming, Cantor’s team included:

Update: Slublog suggests Tom Foley’s defeat in 1994 as an upset to rival this one. True — beating a sitting Speaker is almost unheard of. But ’94 was also the year of a giant GOP wave and Foley lost very narrowly. Cantor’s race is sui generis in an election season where establishment Republicans have done well against tea partiers. And he’s not losing narrowly. He’s getting obliterated.

Update: I know you’re wondering, but rest easy. Virginia does have a “sore loser” law.

Update: You ready for this? Cantor’s own internal polling had him up 62/28.

Update: Tough call for Obama now. At first blush, there’s nothing stopping him at this point from issuing his long-awaited executive order on deportations tomorrow. No sense waiting any longer; the House isn’t going to pass anything on amnesty anymore. But the Cantor earthquake is so surprising that maybe even Democrats are leery now of having O make any sudden moves on the topic. If the House majority leader’s mild support for DREAM was enough to get him swamped at the polls by conservatives, what happens to Democrats in November if Obama doubles down on amnesty with an executive order?

Update: Game over. The upset of the century, so far.

Only one thing left to do now.


Robot libido by sabotage

Update: So, who’s the new House majority leader? Kevin McCarthy? Caucus might feel obliged to push someone more conservative after this, a la Jeb Hensarling or Jim Jordan.

Update: Good point from Sean Davis:

Establishment Republicans would have been comfortable with Cantor replacing Boehner. Now that there’s a chance that Boehner’s successor will be significantly more conservative than him, there’ll be heavy pressure on him to stick around until someone more moderate can creep up the ranks.

Possible compromise candidate: Paul Ryan?

Update: This upset may have ended more than just the near-term prospects for immigration reform. Hmmmmm:

Update: See why I thought Cantor would win by 30?

Update: Now this is interesting. Did Brat get help from anti-Cantor Democrats?

Update: Minor problem with the “Operation Chaos” theory of Brat’s upset, says Leon Wolf:

If Democrats were capable of mounting a significant effort against Cantor in the GOP primary, they’d have a serious candidate waiting for Brat in the general. They don’t. The Dem nominee is token opposition.

Update: Meanwhile, as predicted, Lindsey Graham topped 50 percent tonight, winning his primary without a runoff. How did Grahamnesty pull that off while Cantor got swamped over immigration?

Update: More pushback to the “Operation Chaos” theory from Wasserman:

Update: The White House has released its spin for the evening. You ready?

A spokesman for President Obama rushed to assure House Republicans that Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R., Va.) didn’t actually lose because of his gestures toward Democrats on immigration reform.

“Cantor’s problem wasn’t his position on immigration reform, it was his lack of a position,” Obama advisor Dan Pfeiffer tweeted, citing the success of Senator Lindsay Graham (R., S.C.). “Graham wrote and passed a bill and is winning big.”

Tonight was … a win for amnesty?

Update: An eeyore like me can’t resist some pessimism amid a hugely exciting upset, so here’s a scenario for you. What if Boehner decides to retire anyway, and he and Cantor decide to go ahead and ram amnesty through this summer with token GOP support (30 votes or so) plus 190 Democrats? Cantor’s got nothing left to lose now.

Right now – indications are that Graham may have the 50% he needs to avoid the runoff.

Bill Connor would have been a rock solid replacement – but Graham may have again proven to be a master of retail and wholesale politics.

Bmore on June 10, 2014 at 6:43 PM

Our best chance to put a stake through the heart of the amnesty push is

We might be tired but we are strong. I hear there is a place called Texas and another place called North Dakota.

At the rate we’re going under Obama, America is Iraq – Iraq is fighting al-Q … America is fighting its own Government. Let us not descend into street fights. Let’s just castrate Obama (not that he had any to being with – just saying).

Once Obama is castrated the GOP Country Club will also be castrated. Rush warned that it would take several election cycles and Rush is Right.

Nite, all.

well there’s a heart breaking development at the border that will surely boast the Cantor amnesty commitment…now more than ever.

The kids at the border are being served Cold Eggs…and throwing their burritos in the trash.

how can an advanced country like this countenance such privation…we must do better…we must bring them into our society

/s

(on a serious note…that certainly belies the narrative that these kids somehow survived the transit thru Mexico…so really, how did they get here?)

anotherJoe on June 10, 2014 at 6:43 PM

I’ve been wanting that so badly, but fear AllahPundit is right. Guess we will know shortly.

As for the Graham race, part of the problem was six people were running against him. Not one of them was polling in the double digits in any poll I saw. Why didn’t at least a few of them drop out and support whoever may have had the best chance?

Even if by some miracle Grahamnesty is held to under 50%, whoever finishes second will be broke and have no way to mount a serious challenge.

Ok, it just ticked to 16%. Brat 60.8%, Cantor 39.2%.
Tell me what I’m missing?!!

anotherJoe on June 10, 2014 at 7:22 PM

I voted against Graham. For those South Carolinians who voted for him, you screwed yourself bigtime. You just elected Mr. Amnesty.

No doubt. I have only been able to vote for a republican congresscritter one time in my entire life. Then Tom DeLay went and stuck me back in Eddie Bernice Johnson’s district.

Though I do remember Lloyd Benson.

What left field did come from anyway?

Of course a RINO is better than a liberal.

57-43 Brat still up 33% reporting

It’s amazing how, with so much information so easily accessible, people are still fooled by the lies of fraudulent charlatans like Graham and Cantor.

Take heat VA’ers and SC’ers. Incumbents can be removed.

Just ask Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst-who’s running for reelection this…oh wait…
