Congressman Eric Cantor (b. June 6, 1963)

Eric Cantor is a fifth-term congressman representing the Seventh District of Virginia. He recently won re-election to Congress in November 2010. Cantor now serves as the Republican Majority Leader in the House of Representatives.

 

In December 2008, Eric Cantor was elected to serve as the Republican Whip. Representative Cantor also holds a seat on the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, which has direct jurisdiction over taxes, trade, Social Security, Medicare, prescription drugs for seniors, health care and welfare reform. Cantor is the only Jewish member of the House Republican leadership.

 

He serves as Chairman of the Congressional Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare. The task force is composed of Members of Congress who study the threat of international terrorism on the United States and develop policy proposals and legislative recommendations regarding the fight against terrorism.

 

Eric Cantor is a lifelong resident of the Richmond area. He started in politics as a student at George Washington University as an intern for Congressman Tom Bliley in the congressman's Washington office and by serving as a driver on Bliley’s first re-election campaign. Cantor received his law degree from The College of William and Mary and his Master’s degree from Columbia University in New York.

Cantor became better known to the American public in the summer of 2011, during the negotiations on the Debt Ceiling Crisis.
