Seriously, why do they need a special election? Didn't he lose the primary BEFORE the general election?

He currently holds the seat until January. Now that he's leaving it will be unfilled. The special election will allow the winner to immediately take office.

Cantor's reply: Nah, nah, nah, nah. I'm going to K street, I have a retirement you can only dream of, and I'm going to make more money than I ever could in Congress.. see ya, wouldn't want to be ya!  :tongue2:

I'm not surprised he is going to step down early.  I was surprised when he initially said he would serve out his entire term.  This way he puts the
onus on the Gubnor, who now has to come up with a temp who is also willing to run for the office this Fall.

I cannot imagine myself continuing after losing a Primary so spectacularly.  If it had been me, I would have announced my immediate retirement from the House at the conclusion of my concession speech.

If he had any balls, he would chug down a fifth of Jack Daniels and run bare-assed through the Chamber.

And what makes Cantor think that McAuliffe is going to listen to him? Terry is going to do everything he can to either leave that seat vacant or rig the contest so that the Democrat wins, that way the Dem has incumbency heading into the contest with David Brat.

He doesn't.  It's called payback.  She's a bitch.
