Incoming House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (Va.) on Monday announced the selection of close ally and fellow GOP “Young Guns” member Rep. Kevin McCarthy (Calif.) as his chief deputy whip.
McCarthy, just elected to only his second term, is now set to become the highest appointed member of the Republican Conference for the 111th Congress.
“Being entrusted by my friend Republican Whip Eric Cantor to serve in the House Republican Leadership as Chief Deputy Republican Whip is an enormous honor,” McCarthy said in a joint statement he released with Cantor. “We will be part of the solution to turn the page toward a new era of Republican leadership. I am proud to begin this mission on the innovative path to a better future.”
Cantor and McCarthy both stressed the need to rebuild the Republican Party after its second consecutive devastating loss to Democrats, and vowed to serve as a “check and balance to the power of Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi [D-Calif.] and President-elect Obama.”
Cantor said that he is looking forward “to focusing on rebuilding our party and working towards innovative solutions to help the middle-class taxpayers of America.”
Ahh...the benefits of twitter!

Obama certainly has his plans to spend government money, but he also rode into office on a wave of change, and right now, in our government, a change in behavior would be less spending, not more.

Boehner, Cantor Offer Earmark Reform Resolution
GOP Rules Change Would Set Up Spending Reform Panel, Place Moratorium on Earmark Requests Until Report is Filed
WASHINGTON, DC - House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) and Republican Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA) today filed a proposed amendment to House Republican Conference rules. If adopted, the rules change would establish a House Republican earmark reform panel and place a moratorium on earmark requests by House Republican Members until the panel has filed a report with recommendations for changing Washington's broken spending practices.
WASHINGTON—Rep. Eric I. Cantor became the No. 2 Republican in the U.S. House today, winning an uncontested election as party whip.
Cantor is the first Virginian to hold the post in either party. As whip, he will work to coordinate the votes and messages of GOP House members.
Cantor has served as the chief deputy whip since 2002 when then-whip Rep. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., appointed him to the post. Cantor’s safe Republican Virginia district, relative youth (he’s 45) and prolific fundraising have led to his being mentioned as a potential Speaker of the House down the road.
Blunt did not seek reelection to the Republican leadership team after the party lost seats in the Nov. 4 elections and fell deeper into minority status. The House runs strictly by majority rules.
In a letter campaigning for the job Tuesday, Cantor called for his party to be the “honest opposition” to the new Democratic administration but suggested avoiding social wedge issues.
The Republican whip post has been home to some of the most notable Republicans of past decades. Past whips have included former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-Ga., Vice President Dick Cheney, and former Sen. Trent Lott, R-Miss.
Aside from Gingrich, the whip position has not been a stepping stone to the speakership.
The job comes with extra staff and office funding and some choice space inside the Capitol Building, where Cantor currently has a smaller space as chief deputy whip.

(CNSNews.com) - Violent sex offenders who are also illegal aliens in Virginia were identified, located, and deported thanks to a well-coordinated joint operation earlier this year involving both state and federal officials. The effort should serve as a model for immigration enforcement throughout the United States, Bob McDonnell, Virginia’s Republican attorney general, told CNSNews.com in an exclusive interview. “Operation Cold Play” made it possible for the U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency to place 171 convicted criminal alien sex offenders into deportation proceedings thanks in large part to local and state involvement in the investigation, McDonnell explained in an email.

Recent inRich.com article:
- And Democratic candidate Brian Moran is reluctant to dig into the deep "at this time."
On Wednesday, the U.S. Department of the Interior opened a 45-day public-comment period on offshore drilling, part of the process to consider leasing land off the Virginia coast in 2011 for oil and gas exploration.
The area considered for drilling is a 2.9 million-acre slice of the ocean floor more than 50 miles east of Virginia Beach and the state's Eastern Shore. The Interior Department estimates it could contain 130 million barrels of oil and 1.1 trillion cubic feet of natural gas.
Interior's announcement comes less than six weeks after Congress let a moratorium on offshore drilling expire and two months before a change of presidential administrations.
So yesterday, the four men expected to compete for the governor's job outlined their positions on the politically combustible issue. It rose to prominence this year as gasoline prices topped $4 a gallon and energy independence took center stage in the presidential race.
"The attorney general strongly supports offshore drilling for oil and natural gas," said Phil Cox, campaign strategist for McDonnell, Virginia's attorney general and a former member of the House of Delegates from Virginia Beach.
"He believes that advances in technology over the past two decades give us the ability to drill offshore in an environmentally friendly way and believes offshore drilling will help to create new American jobs and reduce our dependence on foreign sources of energy," Cox added.
State Sen. R. Creigh Deeds, D-Bath, favors "environmentally safe offshore drilling." He said such drilling would need to generate royalties and not interfere with the military, tourism and fishing industries. He said it should be explored as part of a broad proposal to develop new energy technology and alternative fuel production in the commonwealth.
"By linking our world-class research institutions with a statewide energy initiative, we will create new jobs and solve the biggest issue of our generation," he said.
Terry McAuliffe, an unannounced candidate for the Democratic nomination, is staking out a position that recalls that of current Gov. Timothy M. Kaine.
Like the governor, McAuliffe favors exploration offshore for natural gas but not oil.
McAuliffe, former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, said the federal push for drilling along the Virginia coast is a last gasp for the departing Bush administration.
"This is Bush trying to get some stuff done at the end," he said.
President-elect Barack Obama has said he is open to offshore energy exploration, but he has the option not to proceed with the sale of leases.
McAuliffe noted the concerns of the military, which worries that drilling platforms could be a hazard to U.S. warships and aircraft.
Another Democratic prospect, Del. Brian J. Moran of Alexandria, opposes exploration for oil and gas "at this time," according to his spokesman, Jesse Ferguson.
"Our first priority should be alternative and renewable energy sources, not drilling for more of a 19th-century energy source," Ferguson said.
Ferguson also said it has not been proved that Virginia oil and gas reserves are a "long-term solution" to energy needs.
He said Moran believes offshore exploration is a potential threat to the environment and to the appeal of Virginia Beach, among other shore points, as a tourist destination.

Let us be realistic, the tide is not in our favor, we have a Democratic Governor, both our Senators are Democratic, and we lost three of our House of Representatives (Tom Davis, Virgil H. Goode, Thelma Drake) seats. This is going to be hard to overcome unless something turns around real soon. I am very concerned about the federal decisions being made and you know they will not be in concert with "We The People" of Virginia! In the future we need to hold these politicians accountable to our core values and beliefs.
Seriously Virginia, where are you headed? What will your Virginia look like when you retire or your sons and daughters graduate from high school or college?
What are your plans for the next two years? Let another two or three House of Representatives seats fall by the wayside?
Let not your determination, resolution, or persistence in God and Jesus not falter as we go forward into this abyss.
