Cantor Faces Tea Party Uprising

"Just a few miles from his family home, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) felt the wrath of the tea party Saturday, when activists in his congressional district booed and heckled the second-most powerful House Republican," the Washington Post reports.

"They also elected one of their own to lead Virginia's 7th Congressional District Republican Committee, turning their back on Cantor's choice for a post viewed as crucial by both tea party and establishment wings in determining control of the fractured state GOP."
