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.
