House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) told CNN in an interview aired this morning that he doesn’t believe “there is any one reason for the outcome of the election” last week that cost him his seat.

“There’s just a lot of things that go through voters’ minds when they go through the voting booth,” he said.

Cantor’s primary loss to political novice and economics professor Dave Brat has turned out to be the political shocker of the season thus far. He’ll step down from his GOP leadership post in the House on July 31.

“I will tell you one thing,” he added. “We ran my campaign the same way that I’m trying to focus my work here in the debate in Washington, and that is focusing on people who have real problems.”

He credited his wife of 25 years and three kids for helping him get through primary night.

“And I told them, I said, look, dad is going to lose. And I actually called my son who works up in New York and I told him. He said, you’re kidding. And I said, no, I’m really not. He said, you’re kidding. I said, no. I said, look, but things happen for a reason. We don’t always know right here and now why,” he said. “And I think the perspective of time will actually indicate something that may have seemed really bad at the time can turn out to be really good.”

Just go away Cantor and take your serf labor wanting crony capitalist Chamber of Commerce anti-Americans with you. I'm sure you can sell whatever remains of your soul for some high paid lobbyist position or other high gratuity.

Y'know, until he got himself defenestrated (that means kicked out the window for those of us in Rio Linda) I never suspected he was a Jooo.

Guess I'll have to turn in my armband, hood and Cossack saber, huh?
