Eric Ivan Cantor is an American politician, lawyer and businessman, who served as the United States representative for Virginia's 7th congressional district from 2001 to 2014.

A member of the Republican Party, he became House Majority Leader when the 112th Congress convened on January 3, 2011.

He previously served as House Minority Whip from 2009 to 2011.

His district included most of the northern and western sections of Richmond, along with most of Richmond's western suburbs and portions of the Shenandoah Valley.

Cantor is the highest-ranking Jewish member of Congress in its history, and at the time of his resignation, the only non-Christian Republican in either house.

In June 2014, in his bid for re-election, Cantor lost the Republican primary to economics professor Dave Brat in an upset that surprised political analysts.

In response Cantor announced his early resignation as House Majority Leader, and several weeks later, he announced his resignation from Congress, which took effect August 18, 2014.

Immediately thereafter, Cantor accepted a position as vice chairman of investment bank Moelis & Company at a compensation of $3.4 million.
