Pelosi on Cantor Exit: 'It's a Whole New Ballgame'
 

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi pretended to hold a baseball at the microphones on Thursday morning during her weekly press conference, reiterating her characterization of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's Tuesday primary defeat as creating "a whole new ballgame."

The California Democrat said she's hopeful the House can tackle issues like an immigration overhaul, despite concerns that Cantor's departure will drive House Republicans further to the right, making compromise less likely.
