Topic - Wayne Powell
High-profile House members typically cruise toward re-election with little worry. But Democrats and their allies this year have vowed to make a few of the chamber's top Republicans sweat at least a bit during the campaign season.
Democrat Wayne Powell came out swinging Monday and remained on the offensive throughout the first debate in the race for Virginia's 7th congressional district seat, accusing U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor of abdicating his role as a leader of Congress and repeatedly slamming him for his lack of military service, while the visibly agitated six-term incumbent labored to furiously fend off the flurry of attacks.
U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor will debate a Democratic candidate before a general election for the first time in a decade Monday. His last debate was in 2002 against a former "Dukes of Hazzard" star nicknamed Cooter.
And a strategist for Democrat Wayne Powell, a long-shot against House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, has promised to politically batter the Virginia Republican so much that he'll be unfit to ever challenge House Speaker John A. Boehner of Ohio for his party's top spot in the chamber.
