Eric Cantor's challenger, Wayne Powell, speaks with Salon.

Saturday, Sep 15
“Self-absorbed, egomaniacal”

Powell tells Salon that Cantor is too beholden to corporate interests and too “self-absobed” to care about average folks. Powell says he thinks he’ll convince voters he’s the right guy after an upcoming debate. This conversation has been edited for conciseness.

Why are you running?

I’m one to take charge and do things myself and that’s why I’m in the race. I love my country, we’ve got problems and Mr. Cantor has caused a lot of them. And I want to defeat him and replace him. After the meltdown of 2008, which has cost me a lot, personally, I decided that someone needs to stand up and face this man, who basically represents the greediest amongst us, and not the people of the 7th District. And that’s why [I'm doing] what [I'm doing].
