Cantor on McDonnell Thesis

Rep. Eric Cantor (R-7th) — one of Virginia’s most powerful Republicans — said the controversy surrounding GOP gubernatorial nominee Bob McDonnell’s thesis is “much ado about nothing.”

I ran into Cantor in Richmond today and asked him about the potential impact McDonnell’s written comments might have on the race.

“Bob McDonnell has demonstrated a commitment to fairness for all and opportunity for everyone,” Cantor said. “And I think he lives that, he practices that.”

He said concerns about jobs and the economy will overshadow social debates.

“We ought to be focusing on the issues that voters in a couple of months will be faced with when making a decision at the ballot box.”
