Cantor to Resign in August             08/01 06:15

   RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor tells a Virginia newspaper he 
will resign his seat in the House of Representatives months earlier than 
expected.

   The Richmond Times-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1puQVLX ) reported early Friday 
that Cantor says he will step down Aug. 18 to make sure constituents have a 
voice during the "consequential" lame-duck session.

   Cantor tells the newspaper he has asked Gov. Terry McAuliffe to call a 
special election for his district that coincides with the Nov. 4 general 
election. That would enable his successor to take office immediately.

   Cantor's announcement comes hours after he stepped down as House majority 
leader Thursday. Cantor had previously said he would serve his full term, which 
would have ended in January.

   Cantor lost to Dave Brat, an underfunded, tea party-backed opponent, in his 
Republican primary in June.
