In the primary elections held Tuesday and the contests held two weeks ago, candidates who signed a pledge to vow to oppose "amnesty" have not fared well at all against candidates who did not sign this pledge.

The Republicans are going to use Cantor's loss as an excuse not to pass immigration reform. The facts can be damned as far as they are concerned.

Did not the ancestors of the Republicans be kind of immigrants to America too?

Very interesting. Only time will tell I guess.

The analysts are now saying that, if you thought Republicans were already obstructionist, just wait till you see them now. Yet it is clear to me and anyone who looks at the race closely that Cantor lost on TURNOUT alone. This should put some much needed fear into Democrats, seeing that Democrats, liberals, and progressives are notoriously bad at voting, particularly in non-Presidential election years. The only good news is that Cantor couldn't buy the election with money. he outspent Brat something like 40:1.

Amnesty is not a policy...it's just a blanket ok to remain here, and allow 200,000 people just for starters), to take advantage of our medical care, and our schools.

If any of those who opposed amnesty and won in the primary, they won't win in the general election.

Is this about immigration only, or is this about a deep split in the GOP? Just look at Idaho which tried to have their GOP conference recently. It was so fractious that Raul Labrador, a Idaho senator running the meeting, had to adjourn it with absolutely nothing being accomplished. So the party seems to be at odds with itself, but also the party seems to be out of touch with its constituents.

Let's work for and hope for a Democrat victory 05 Nov 2014.
