Cantor Bids Farewell as Majority Leader

Eric Cantor delivered his final remarks as the House majority leader in front of a full chamber on Tuesday, thanking his colleagues for their service and urging them not to take their positions for granted.

Although “too many are left wondering if we can be an America that works, an America that leads,” Cantor remained confident that Congress and the nation as a whole would continue to be a shining light in the world, pointing to some of his legislative accomplishments as examples.

He went on to thank his family, his staff, the rest of Republican leadership, and other members of Congress, as well as to wish his successor Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.) the best in his new role.

“With that, I yield back,” Cantor said to applause.
