Befuddlement hit and lingered within the House GOP leadership ranks as Majority Leader Eric Cantor's election fate was unwinding on Tuesday. Cantor lost in a major upset to primary challenger Dave Brat.
Speaker John Boehner, in a statement from his office late Tuesday night, said, "Eric Cantor and I have gone through a lot together."
"He's a good friend and a great leader, and someone I've come to rely upon on a daily basis as we make the tough choices that come with governing," added Boehner, who said his thoughts Tuesday night were with Cantor, his wife Diana, and their kids.
