Cantor on Cantor

ALBANY -- Dan Cantor, the leader of the liberal party roiling New York politics these days, took time out for a bit of humor after the dramatic upset Tuesday night of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor.

Although there is no family relation between the two leaders on opposite ends of the political spectrum, Dan Cantor, national director of leader of the Working Families Party, couldn’t help but to comment on the congressional defeat of the veteran Virginia Republican.

"Tonight's vote should not be seen as a referendum on Cantors everywhere -- only on right-wing ones,” Dan Cantor said. “Progressive Cantors are seeing more success than ever. Eric, this means you're bringing the barbecue grill to the next family picnic."
