Virginia’s 7th District Congressional Race

Rep. Eric Cantor

E. Wayne Powell

Republican Eric Cantor is one of America’s best-known Congressmen – the House Majority Leader who clashed with President Obama, blocking a compromise on the debt ceiling.  As a member of the Ways and Means Committee, which oversees healthcare and tax law, he’s collected more than $6 million in campaign contributions over the last two years, and his district is solidly Republican. Even so, the 12-year incumbent faces a serious challenge from political newcomer Wayne Powell.  Sandy Hausman reports on what divides the candidates in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District, and why Powell thinks he can win.
