Best Quotes from the Sunday Shows – 6.15.14

Topics of conversation on yesterday’s Sunday Shows ranged from the defeat of Eric Cantor in Tuesday’s Virginia primary to U.S. military involvement in Iraq to Father’s Day. Here are your top quotes from Sunday’s public affairs programming.

Asked whether his primary upset was surprising on ABC’s “This Week,” Rep. Eric Cantor said, “Absolutely…I don’t think anybody in the country thought that the outcome would be what it was. And, you know, I just am a believer, as I said that night, and subsequently, that there are some things that happen for a reason and we may not be able to really discern it now and given the perspective of time, I think we’re going to be able to look back at this, and what seemed really bad at the time may turn out to be really good.”

Asked by CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union” what it was like in the moment he realized he’d be defeated, Cantor said, “Well, you know, I was with my family. And it’s very comforting, as you know, if you have a strong family. I have a wonderful wife of 25 years, three wonderful kids, two of whom were with me…And I told them, I said, look, dad is going to lose. And I actually called my son who works up in New York and I told him. He said, you’re kidding. And I said, no, I’m really not. He said, you’re kidding. I said, no. I said, look, but things happen for a reason.” Read more
