Cantor defeated in Virginia

Eric Cantor, one of the high profile "mainstream" GOP elite was crushed Tuesday in a Virginia primary.

NPR reports a pro-immigration stance played part in Cantor's defeat:
Although Cantor is a conservative and has been close to the Tea Party, "in the past two years they've been angered by his shift to support for some kind of immigration reform. Brat made that an issue, saying Cantor was no longer a real conservative," NPR's Don Gonyea says.
Let's hope the pro-immigration Republicans in Washington are taking notice. I suspect more than a few of DC's RINOs had a sleepless night last night.,
