Wayne Powell Launches Vulgar Campaign Against Cantor

Democrat Wayne Powell launched his General Election campaign against Eric Cantor last week with deliberate, profanity laced attacks against Eric in an obvious attempt to get national attention and “Hollywood money”.

Two weeks ago Wayne Powell, the Democrat opposing Eric Cantor, announced in the Richmond Times Dispatchthat he was revamping his campaign, bringing in new staff, and intended to “nationalize” his campaign against Eric Cantor. At the time we didn’t know what that meant.

Unfortunately now we do.

 Since then we have seen a coordinated media blitz to attract attention to his campaign and witnessed as Powell’s campaign has publicly discussed their strategy.


The Powell Campaign told the Roanoke Times: Eric Cantor is a “bought-and-paid-for bastard.”

 Then in an interview with The Blue Ridge Caucus added: “It’s going to be a bloody son of a B%@#*. We’re really going to do some cool S*%#. I’ve got help out of Hollywood and Nashville.”

 Then upped the ante in The Daily Caller: “What he [Eric Cantor] has done is sold out the 7th District and his country….”

 And also to The Daily Caller: “We cannot win this campaign, cannot tell the story on Eric Cantor, if we don’t have bullets.”

 So, there you have it. Wayne Powell’s publicly announced strategy to defeat Eric Cantor: vulgarity, profanity, school yard taunts, and questioning the Majority Leader’s patriotism. At least now we know the kind of campaign Wayne Powell intends to run. And, we know we have a lot of work to do. 

Wayne Powell underestimates the people of Virginia. Virginians are decent, hardworking, and fair-minded. They expect more from their leaders than profanity laced character assassination.

 Eric Cantor will take a different approach. Eric believes that America is at a crossroads. The decisions made in this election will determine whether we continue down the road of high unemployment, economic stagnation and massive debt, or we change course, restore fiscal sanity, reduce the deficits, and restore pro-growth, pro-jobs and pro-freedom policies.

 Eric Cantor will remain focused on cutting regulations and taxes on small businesses to allow them to create and retain good jobs. We will leave the name calling and profanity to Mr. Powell’s campaign. 

But, this is also a strong reminder to all of us who support Eric and his vision of a prosperous and strong America.We all need to rededicate ourselves to the work necessary to re-elect Eric Cantor to the United States Congress. Because it is now very clear that Wayne Powell will say anything – no matter how vile – in his attempt to gain power.

 Team Cantor
