Cantor Campaign Spent More at One Steakhouse than Brat on Entire Campaign

Cantor Campaign Spent More at One Steakhouse than Brat on Entire Campaign

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s (R-VA) campaign spent more money at one posh steakhouse before his shocking Tuesday primary defeat than his opponent Dave Brat spent on his whole campaign.

Cantor’s campaign spent $124,177 at Bobby Van’S Grill and Steakhouse and $44,460 at Blt Steak for a total of $168,637.

According to Open Secrets, Cantor raised $5.4 million while Brat raised $206,663. While Cantor spent nearly all of his haul ($5.1 million), Brat spent $122,793 for his entire campaign, which was less than what Cantor’s campaign spent at Bobby Van’S alone ($124,177).

Some analysts felt Brat was more effective in delivering red meat to his conservative base.

The data is based on filings to the Federal Election Commission. Cantor’s latest filing was submitted May 29 and covers through May 21.
