Minority Whip Eric Cantor lends support at GOP fundraiser in Monroe, By Roger Gavan Monroe - Eric Cantor, House of Representatives Minority Whip who will become Majority Leader next year, was the guest of honor at a GOP fundraiser in Monroe on Friday, Oct. 29. Cantor joined congressional candidate Dr. Nan Hayworth, the Republican from Mount Kisco, at a gathering of Republican supporters held in the home of Don and Kathy Beeler. The event, held the final days before the election, was part of Hayworth’s whirlwind tour of the 19th District in her successful bid to defeat Rep. John Hall, D-Dover Plains. At the time, Hayworth’s Communications director Douglas Cunningham privately expressed concern that their internal polls were showing a dead heat and admitted that Hall had an advantage of being a well funded, two-term incumbent. As a familiar figure on national TV, Cantor’s support was welcomed by Hayworth. He had become well known for his outspoken criticism of the Administration and House leadership and promotion of his own broad range of solutions to promote economic freedom, growth, job creation and national security. Representing Virginia’s 7th District, Cantor has served in the U.S. House of Representatives since 2001. Cantor is second in line behind Ohio Rep. John Boehner in the Republican leadership in the U.S. House of Representatives. When Boehner becomes the Speaker of the House, replacing Nancy Pelosi, Cantor will become the Majority Leader. Hayworth cast her ballot on Tuesday morning at the Bedford Town House/municipal building in Bedford Hills. She celebrated her victory Tuesday night at the Hotel Sierra in Fishkill. “The real work begins tomorrow,” she said. How Orange County voted Unofficial results as of Nov. 3 Governor/Lt.
