When Kevin McCarthy and fellow Republican Reps. Paul D. Ryan and Eric Cantor ganged up in 2007 as the new generation of conservative leadership, they did a great job putting the party's goals down on paper, the man who unseated Cantor said Friday.
"But my question to them is, do they mean it? Did they just do that as a political ploy to run or was that a real pledge to America?" challenged Virginia Rep. Dave Brat. "Because usually when you do a pledge, you intend to keep your pledge." Counting the "Young Guns" casualties, first comes then-House Majority Leader Cantor's stunning June 2014 primary loss to Brat.
