Eric Cantor: Dems Didn't Get the Message If Pelosi is Made Minority Leader

Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Virginia) told Chris Wallace today on FOX News Sunday that if democrats make Nancy Pelosi Minority Leader, they didn’t get the message.
The Hill reported:

House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said Sunday that Democrats “just didn’t get the message from the voters this election” if they make Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) their next majority leader.

“I mean, the voters outright rejected the agenda that she’s been about. And here they’re going to put her back in charge,” Cantor, in line to become the House majority leader in the next Congress, said on “Fox News Sunday.”

“I mean this is the woman who really, I think, puts ideology first, and there have been no results for the American people,” he said. “And that seems the direction they want to take again. It just doesn’t make sense.”

Pelosi announced via Twitter on Friday that she would run for the post. Democrats Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), who is stepping down as head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and James Clyburn (D-S.C.), the majority whip who will be running against Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) for minority whip in the next Congress, supported Pelosi on shows Sunday.
