DNC Targets Cantor and Other Possible VPs

Anita Kumar

The Democratic National Committee launched a new website The Next Cheney to target Sen. John McCain's potential running mates, including U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor of Virginia.

The website criticizes Cantor for voting with President Bush 92.5 percent during the 110 Congress and having ties to disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff.

Cantor, 45, chief deputy minority whip in the House, has been mentioned as a possible vice presidential choice in recent days. He is one of seven vice presidential candidates listed on the website, including Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, U.S. Sen. John Thune and former presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

Cantor's office declined to comment.
