After my exclusive interview with Chief Deputy Republican Whip Eric Cantor (VA-7) on Friday, after the House GOP Sit-in protest on the American Energy Plan, my sources confirmed what the Associated Press, and now my fellas at POLITICO are now reporting: the presidential campaign of John McCain have requested the personal and financial docs necessary to vet Chief Deputy Republican Whip Eric Cantor for Vice President. Woohoo, A. B. Culvahouse.
“McCain needs to do something different,” said Chris LaCivita, a top Virginia Republican strategist. Citing his youth, ties to the business community, strong relationship with conservative activists and proven ability to raise money, LaCivita said Cantor “fits all the bills”
Amen! Note my last turn in the AOL Hot Seat – where I asked if we would see a McCain-Cantor ticket.
Update: Dr. Richard Land, of the Southern Baptist Convention has endorsed Eric Cantor as VP.
UPDATE: Looks like a lot of other folks are now on the McCain-Cantor bandwagon now. Here are some of the links. Just remember, I’m the one who loves you baby. And I gave it you you first.
