Is There Hope??

In the most stunning upset of the midterm election season, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was crushed in the Virginia Republican primary Tuesday by little-known tea party-backed challenger Dave Brat.

He called his win a "miracle," but said it also was a clear mandate.

"I'm utterly humbled and thankful," he told Fox News. "God acts through people, and God acted through the people on my behalf."

"We're just celebrating like crazy tonight, an unbelievable miracle." 

Brat said, however, that he did not feel the race was "a contest between the tea party and the Republicans," adding: "I ran on the Republican principles." 

With 100 percent of the vote counted, Brat had 55.5 percent to Cantor's 44.5 percent.
