I think one thing that's worth mentioning is the well-deserved reputation Cantor and his office had earned for being unresponsive to constituents and more concerned with expanding his power in DC. You could never get a straight answer on where Cantor stood on an issue when you called his office and he only seemed interested in the issues concerning his big donors and raising money for his PAC.

In one surreal case a few months ago, his legislative director called me for a quote for a press release trumpeting a bill that had just passed. The only problem was that I had repeatedly expressed my concern over severe flaws in the bill and was adamant that I could not support it.

Out of touch was the sentiment of the day and many of us in the 7th district had finally had enough. It wasn't about immigration or party affiliation. He was simply bad at his job, so we fired him.
