Republican Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA) today issued the following statement after Rep. Parker Griffith (R-AL) announced he was leaving the Democrat Caucus and joining the Republican Conference in the U.S. House of Representatives.

"When a Member of Congress decides to leave a 258 seat majority to join a deep minority, it is a sure sign that the majority party has become completely disconnected from seniors, young workers, and families in America. From the massive stimulus bill that wasted billions of dollars and failed to create jobs, to a job-killing cap and trade energy tax, to a government takeover of health care - the Democrat majority has pursued an agenda far outside the mainstream. Democrats are beginning to realize what most Americans did months ago - that their priorities are not in line with what Americans want right now -- which is job growth, economic security, a safe and secure nation, and a fiscally sane Congress that doesn't spend money that it doesn't have.

"We welcome Parker Griffith to the Republican Conference, and will continue to stand and fight against the damaging agenda of this Administration working in tandem with the Pelosi/Reid run Congress."
