The Associated Press reports that Virginia Congressman Eric Cantor, chief deputy minority whip, is being considered as a running mate by John McCain.
Cantor has a lot of advantages. He is admired by conservatives, is from Virginia, and would connect McCain to the high-energy conservative Republicans in the House of Representatives. Cantor would be an effective spokesman on energy, taxes and other issues that are important to the party’s base. Still, he has to be viewed as a long shot, if only because he is virtually unknown to the general public.
