Eric Cantor still has it.
Garrett Hall was tightly packed Friday as former House of Representatives Majority Leader Eric I. Cantor discussed the upcoming presidential election with students from the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy at the University of Virginia.
Sitting in an informal armchair on a small stage, Cantor … spoke about the presidential election and economic growth strategies, while addressing several questions from students.
He still has that capacity to draw a crowd.
Last January I had the opportunity to listen to Congressman Cantor in a similar informal setting as he relaxed in front of a crowd (see Virginia Republicans look to the future), displaying his depth of understanding the complex and difficult issues that face our country.
This time he was discussing 2016.
