Rep. Eric Cantor is right smack dab in the middle of 2012 election on many levels. Not only is he a high profile supporter of Mitt Romney, but he is also working to help grow the GOP majority in the House of Representative across the country. That is all of course in addition to his efforts to defend his own seat in Congress. A battle that means fighting off a fierce challenge from democrat Wayne Powell.
Cantor has not sat back and allowed Powell to attack unanswered. He has offered his share of attacks aimed at Powell and he has forcefully defended his own record in Washington.
We talked to the Congressman about all of these issues in a recent interview, an excerpt of which aired Wednesday on NBC12 First at 4.
