Cantor Will Resign from Congress

"Less than two months after his stunning primary upset and just hours after stepping down as House majority leader, Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) said Thursday that he will resign his seat in the House of Representatives effective Aug. 18," the Richmond Times Dispatch reports.

"Cantor said he has asked Gov. Terry McAuliffe to call a special election for his district that coincides with the general election on Nov. 4. By having a special election in November, the winner would take office immediately, rather than in January with the next Congress."
