Is the Republican Party Divided? [POLL]

Over the weekend, chairman of the Republican National Committee Reince Priebus told CBS that Eric Cantor’s loss wasn’t because the GOP is divided. According to POLITICO, it was more of a local issue.

 

The chairman of the Republican National Committee says House Majority Leader Eric Cantor lost his primary election because of local issues, not because of a divided Republican Party.

“When you’re trying to be a majority leader, and Eric did a great job of it, but it takes you out all over this country. It takes you out of your district and pretty soon the good work you’re going nationally becomes a liability locally. I think it’s a local issue,” Reince Priebus said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

Cantor’s lost to tea party challenger Dave Brat last Tuesday was cast as both a battle between the grassroots members of the Republican Party and the establishment and a death knell for immigration reform. Cantor was a leading voice among Republicans advocating for changes to the U.S. immigration system.

Priebus said there are a growing number of Republicans who want to debate the “broken” immigration system, citing recent speeches by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul calling for reform.
