300 military advisers prepared to go in Iraq

Seeking a middle ground between calls for tough military action and none at all, President Barack Obama said Thursday he was sending up to 300 military advisers to Iraq to help the embattled government hold off a lightning advance from the north by Sunni militants.

Obama told White House reporters the goal was to prevent a civil war in Iraq that could destabilize the region, and also prevent creation of a terrorist safe haven in northern Iraq and neighboring Syria from which U.S. enemies could plan and launch attacks against American interests. Full story

The Eric Cantor political earthquake

It's the earthquake that rocked the GOP.

In a year when mainstream Republicans have mostly bested tea party-backed challengers, a little-known and little-funded tea party challenger in Virginia's 7th Congressional District pulled the upset of the year, defeating House Majority Leader Eric Cantor by 10 percentage points.

"I think this is a scale eight earthquake. I think it will shock the Washington establishment; it will shock the House Republicans," former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said. Full story

At 6:30pm ET, S.E. Cupp and Stephanie Cutter are joined by Tim Phillips, President of Americans for Prosperity and Kiki McLean, former Advisor to Hillary Clinton for President.

Will Cantor’s loss make the Republican Party stronger or weaker?
