Eric Cantor is now on stage ... Republican Whip ... to huge cheers. He's reminding of Patrick Henry's "Give me liberty or give me death" speech at St. John's Church in Richmond ... Virginia led then ... and tonight Virginia is leading again! "The Republican resurgence begins again tonight here in Virginia!" He's saying that tonight Virginia is saying no to Nancy Pelosi ... no to Harry Reid ... no to Barack Obama. Republicans ran a positive campaign ... true to conservative principles ... reaching out to all. Tonight is living proof that when we stand on our principles, our message and Republican agenda can win in every corner of this Commonwealth, and he thanked everyone for their support and hard work. Because of everyone we won a great victory tonight. The Republican resurgance has begun and it began right here in Virginia, he said.
