Upset in Virginia - Cantor Loses to Libertarian Brat

Eric Cantor is OUT in the Virginia GOP Primary. He lost to an almost unknown Tea Party college Professor named David Brat who teaches Ayn Rand's philosphy at Randolph-Macon University. This is the first time since 1899 that a Majority Leader in the House has been overturned in a Primary. The Democrats in that district just nominated Jack Trammell as their candidate, and weirdly enough he teaches at the same university! What a crazy race this will be to watch!

There is clear Shock and Awe amongst the punditry. They did NOT see this coming and have no way to explain. The only people more confused are Cantor's pollsters, who missed their numbers by a mile.
