Last week, Eric Cantor engaged in an unprecedented intervention in a member-on-member primary by endorsing a liberal freshman, Adam Kinzinger, over a conservative veteran, Don Manzullo.  The latest evidence that Cantor’s endorsement actually hurt Manzullo is the fact that fellow Illinois Rep. Tim Johnson is endorsing Manzullo.  Johnson asserted that he planned to remain neutral, but was prompted to intervene after witnessing Cantor’s egregious betrayal.
