Cantor wins in the 7th
Photographer Peter Cihelka was on hand to cover Congressman Eric Cantor’s reelection party near Richmond. He managed to spend a little time with Cantor and his family in their suite before he made his public remarks. I can’t put my finger on precisely why I like this picture, but I feel like it might say something about him being on the move, particularly in light of the gains made by the Republicans in Congress. -Mike Morones
