Why it's important to get rid of E.R.I.C. Cantor

Clearly, he doesn't vote with the interest of his constituents in mind.
U.S. Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Roanoke, had the second most conservative voting record in the House last year, according to the annual vote study by the National Journal.

Only Rep. Jim Ryun, R-Kan., was more reliably conservative on the 95 votes the publication reviewed.

Goodlatte voted more conservatively than 94 percent of all House members.

Ryun, who unexpectedly lost a reelection bid to a Democratic challenger, voted more conservatively than 97.7 percent of all House members.

The 10 other Virginia House members voted less conservatively. Rep. Eric Cantor, a Richmond Republican and the House GOP chief deputy, was the only one to come within striking distance of Goodlatte, casting a conservative vote 82.5 percent of the time.
As you can see here, while E.R.I.C. Cantor may have won his own election, George Allen did not beat Jim Webb by a margin large enough to constitute an 82.5% CONSERVATIVE voting record. Perhaps some constituents and concerned citizens of Virginia need to write some letters, or actually pay attention the next time someone runs against the horror known as Cantor.
