DCCC spokeswoman Jennifer Crider said: 

 

"As a Republican leader who just this week said the GOP ‘needed' Rush Limbaugh, Eric Cantor has a duty to condemn Limbaugh's hateful and destructive comparison of the Democratic party to Hitler's Nazi party.  Mr. Cantor, it's time to speak up against Limbaugh's hatred."
