GOP’s Eric Cantor joins Jeff Miller for Republican ‘Get Out The Vote’ rally

Eric Cantor, Minority Whip of the United States House of Representatives, joined 11th District Republican Congressional District candidate Jeff Miller at a ‘Get Out The Vote’ rally earlier this afternoon. Nearly 150 people — almost all of them senior citizens — showed up for the event, held in downtown Hendersonville.

The video starts off a little shaky, but it gets better fast. We promise.

    Glad Miller got a hair trim! much better!

    Will Bill Clinton produce any more votes for Shuler?

  2. Dionysis

    Hmmm, it looks like some of the area’s nursing home residents got to enjoy a field trip today!

    A fine, manly lookin’ pair. I wondered whatever happened to those kids who got stuffed in their own lockers.

  4. The Trolls Troll

    @ Bunky: Will Bill Clinton produce any more votes for Heath Shuler? I dunno. I feel like Miller appearing with North Carolina’s resident sociopath congresswoman Virginia Foxx would do more to help Shuler.

  5. Caffeine and video cameras don’t mix well. LOL.

    Dude, tripods are cheap. Spend $20 at Wally World or, if you want a better one, drop $50 at Best Buy or somewhere else.

    Were Ken Hanky and Jeff Fobes there too?

    “Were Ken Hanky and Jeff Fobes there too?”

    I assume you are referring to Ken Hanke. I escaped from my nursing home bed before they could round me up and force-march me to the bus, but I doubt if they are that masochistic.
