Last night I was tipped off that an immigrant advocate organization was planning on protesting at Eric Cantor's victory party for today's Republican primary in Virginia's 7th Congressional District.  I infiltrated Cantor's "Victory" party with the intention of videoing the protest; needless to say, things did not go as planned.

Instead of videoing a protest, I ended up capturing the shock and dismay of Cantor's supporters as the news of his defeat rolled in inexorably.  Cantor made a hasty concession speech and then fled the hall, literally slamming the door in the face of the press.

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.
