LETTER: ‘Upset for the ages’ could become more common
The Eric Cantor “upset for the ages” Tuesday was only the tip of the iceberg. American citizens clearly are fed up with inaction and inattention from their elected representatives in Washington. Virginia primary winner Dave Brat capitalized on this widespread dissatisfaction despite being heavily outspent by his veteran D.C. opponent. “Dollars do not vote, you do,” concluded Brat in his victory speech. He’s right. And American taxpayers are beginning to realize they can make their vote count to elect candidates beholden to them, not to Washington special interests. This primary provided solid evidence that voters’ extreme frustration with Washington can offset the difficult road (i.e. money) candidates for the people face.
