House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Henrico, said on CNN's Erin Burnett he expected Romney to carry the Old Dominion.
"We're going to win Virginia. Mitt Romney is going to win Virginia. I’m here in the Richmond area, and I’ve been out at the polls, all morning, in the early afternoon, and the activity and the level of participation is very high in this suburban counties in and around the Richmond area and the district that I represent. These are counties, Erin, that went for John McCain at least in my district, portions of the counties in my district. We believe we are a strong Republican area and are going to demonstrate so, even more so this time around. People are excited. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have all been here, many, many times, both within the last week. Republicans are energized. They want to see a return to an economic future that has more jobs, more prosperity. And at the end of the day, that's what wins it for us here in Virginia.”
