Cantor also defended his stance on immigration reform after some attributed his shocking primary loss to his confusing position on the issue.
"My position on immigration has not changed," he said when Bash asked him if his position was wishy-washy.
Cantor said that he supports a path to citizenship for undocumented children but does not for all undocumented immigrants.
"I believe it's the right one," he said about his stance on amnesty. "I know that can make a lot of people mad on both sides."
But he said that both parties need to "focus on the things we agree on" when it comes to immigration reform.
When Bash asked the Majority Leader what he thought cost him his primary, he said that "not any one thing" pushed voters to vote for Brat.
Bash also asked Cantor, the only Jewish Republican in Congress, whether his faith may have had something to do with his loss.
"I don't even want to impute that to anybody," he responded.
