Noticing that the percentage of Americans calling themselves Republicans has dropped to the legal drinking age, my former Richmond colleague (and fellow William and Mary law school grad) Eric Cantor has formed the “National Council for a New America,” a “dynamic, forward-looking organization that will amplify the common-sense and wisdom of our fellow citizens through a grassroots dialogue with Republican leaders.”
So the Republican revival effort began Saturday in Arlington (where President Obama got 72% of the vote last year), with an appearance by Eric, Jeb Bush, and Mitt Romney. In the middle of my district. At a great pizza place in the shopping center where I have my district office. And he didn’t invite me.
