Rep. Eric Cantor (VA-7) holds up a bumpersticker someone gave him. The sticker reads, “Less Government, More Freedom.” Cantor said he would try to make that happen.
The crowd, by estimate of 7th District Chairman Linwood Cobb, and of the barbeque providers, was north of 4,000. Cobb believed it was the largest crowd ever for the event.
Cantor signed copies of “Young Guns,” which he co-authored with Reps. Ryan and McCarthy. When speaking at the Roundup, Cantor was brief, echoing themes from the book. (There is more in a recent Wall Street Journal interview with Cantor).
