Cantor: Moore ‘Deserves to Lose’

On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “New Day,” former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) stated that he believes Alabama Republican Senate nominee Judge Roy Moore “deserves to lose.”

Anchor Chris Cuomo asked Cantor, “Roy Moore, the idea that the party is clearly moving back toward him, does that bother you?”

Cantor answered, “Yeah, it bothers me. I think he deserves to lose. And I, when I was in office as majority leader, I had the policy of zero tolerance of any of this kind of stuff. And I just think that when people elect folks to public office they expect their leaders to live to a much higher standard, and that’s what ought to be maintained.”
