The House Republican Conference paid tribute to outgoing Majority Leader Eric Cantor Tuesday morning with a video showcasing the Virginia Republican’s legislative career.
“While it’s impossible to fully capture your leadership on behalf of House Republicans, I wanted to remind everyone of a few of your many highlights,” Conference Chairwoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington said introducing the video.
The video takes note of the bipartisan pediatric research bill Cantor championed, and includes a mention of his Jewish faith. It is set to triumphant music and includes flattering photos of Cantor working on a variety of issues, stressing bipartisanship and coming together for a common good.
The tribute concludes with the majority leader sounding a hopeful note: ”Each setback is an opportunity and that there is always optimism for the future.”
