Forbes, like Cantor, caught up in anti-establishment wave
Del. Scott W. Taylor’s upset of Rep. J. Randy Forbes, R-4th, in Tuesday’s 2nd District Republican primary is another anti-establishment thunderclap in Virginia politics, two years after Dave Brat ousted U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in the 7th District GOP primary.
“Ultimately, what it shows is the voters’ overall disgust with Congress,” said Robert D. Holsworth, a veteran political commentator, formerly at Virginia Commonwealth University.
“It shows that the traditional value of seniority means very little to the Republican base right now.”
Taylor will compete against Democratic activist Shaun D. Brown in the Republican-leaning district in November.
