From Brad Dayspring, spokesman for House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA).
Response: “With all due respect, perhaps the DCCC Chairman should listen to Mr. Cantor’s statement where he repeatedly called for restraint and condemned violence. It’s very simple. If Chairman Van Hollen misspoke, he should correct the record, and if not, he and the DCCC should accept responsibility for their actions.”
UPDATE: 8:22pm Van Hollen spokesman Doug Thornell fired back at Cantor spokesman's statement with the following:
“It’s been hours since Rep. Cantor’s bizarre and abrupt press conference where he leveled a false accusation that Van Hollen has suggested Democrats use these incidences as a political weapon. We are still waiting for proof to back up this ridiculous claim.”
