Rep. Cantor Rumored To Be Planning Presidential Run. Who’s Next?

Congressional Quarterly is reporting that two Republican congressmen, Eric Cantor of Virginia and Mike Pence of Indiana, could be looking to make a presidential run.

One of our favorite Cantor memories was when he missed one of President Obama’s prime time press conferences on the economy. Where was the House minority whip? At a Britney Spears concert.

But Cantor’s apparently fueling speculation by scheduling listening tours and raising money. He’s added $637,000 to his PAC — called Every Republican Is Crucial (or ERIC).

Just goes to show: In the new Republican Party, no one’s too obscure or too weird to be considered presidential material.
