Slingshot : The Defeat of Eric Cantor Paperback / softback
In this book, the authors take advantage of exceptional behind-the-scenes access to the Brat campaign to explain the challenger's victory.
They examine the essential need for elected officials to maintain strong support in their home districts and just how Cantor's focus on climbing the party ranks in Washington contributed to his loss.
They also show how local "rules of the game" -particularly voter mobilization in this case-affect elections, and they explore the continuing impact of the Tea Party and its role in the factionalism of current Southern politics.
