for conservative values. >> i believe there's opportunity around the next corner for all of us. >> cantor was considered the top candidate to succeed house speaker john boehner. in a statement speaker boehner called cantor a good friend and a great leader and someone i've come to rely upon on a daily basis as we make tough choices when it comes to governing. it's the first time in governing history that a house majority leader has lost a primary. now, it is still unclear if cantor will keep his post until the end of the year and who replaces him in the new congress if the republicans keep their majority. anne-marie? >> susan mcginnis in washington. thank you, susan. well, as we reported it appears to have been a critical issue in eric cantor's defeat. a senate panel voted to give the obama administration an extra $2 billion to handle a surge of uncompanied children caught trying to cross the mexican
