Below are rough notes from FNC’s Chad Pergram:
Cantor was widely thought of as the next in line to succeed Boehner if he were to go away. If Boehner were to leave, this really opens up the House GOP leadership race.
It is a big win for the tea party and rocks the GOP to its core.
People will look at immigration on this and Cantor’s support of this.
This has rattled the Capitol as very few people saw this coming. People close to Cantor were telling me the middle of last week that they were not expecting any issues.
