Eric Cantor’s primary loss on Tuesday didn't just stun outside watchers, it slapped the Virginia Republican with shock, too. He said that he doesn't plan to go into lobbying and hasn't ruled out a future run. Mitt Romney also spoke on Cantor’s shocking defeat Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press. Romney told Matt Gregory “Well, there are different voices and different candidates and different effectiveness and different campaigns that of course affect the outcome of various races. I know it's our inclination to look at races and suggest that somehow a national movement is causing what occurs."
