Republicans Angered By Cantor Donation

A number of Republican lawmakers anonymously vented to The Hill about House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's (R-VA) recent $25,000 donation to the Campaign for Primary Accountability, a super PAC that aims to defeat incumbents.

"One veteran lawmaker, upset with the majority leader's perceived aggression toward members of his own party, said House GOP members will now fear payback when they speak out or vote against leadership... The drama is a continuation of Cantor's move to take sides in the member vs. member Illinois Republican primary that pitted freshman Adam Kinzinger -- Cantor's pick -- vs. 20-year incumbent Don Manzullo."
