Sign in Hanover County, VA declaring Eric Cantor to be  a RINO and not a conservative.
See this diary by lowkell for a rundown on what is going on in the VA 7th Congressional District Republican Party.  As can be seen from the sign, there are people in the 7th that are not at all happy with Rep. Cantor.  

Can't say that I'm any happier, but for very different reasons.

On June 10, 7th District Republicans will go to the polls to see who they will run this fall.  It's hard to see Cantor losing, but then again, his boy lost the Chairmanship of the district yesterday (see lowkell's diary mentioned above).

It appears that the June 10 primary may be the only voter challenge Cantor faces this year.  The only announced candidate for the Democratic spot on the ballot, Mike Dickinson, suddenly withdrew the day before the deadline to file.  As a result, the 7th District Democrats have cancelled their nominating convention (link).  For more see this.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
