Virginia Republicans Find Unity Elusive

Washington Post: "Ever since Dave Brat dethroned House Majority Leader Eric Cantor this month, the political newcomer has vowed to bring together the warring factions of the Republican Party. But a dramatic showdown in a Republican committee meeting in Brat's congressional district this week shows that Brat -- and the party -- have a long way to go."

"Cantor loyalists who still sit on the 7th District Committee outmaneuvered Brat supporters to strip the committee of most of its budget -- nearly $400,000. In a savvy bit of parliamentary procedure, they voted to send the money to national GOP organizations based in Washington -- leaving empty-handed the conservative activists who planned to use the money to build a get-out-the-vote operation to complement Brat's fledgling campaign."
