Elephants, Mice and GOP Primaries, Oh My! | Capitol Quip

Elephants, Mice and GOP Primaries, Oh My! | Capitol Quip

Is an immigration overhaul the mouse that roared? Beats us. Maybe we should ask Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who lost his Republican primary in Virginia last week after his opponent, previously obscure economics professor Dave Brat, made immigration a big issue in the race. That brings us to this week’s Capitol Quip.

Send us a caption for this week’s contest by leaving it in the comments section. Editors will pick five finalists on Wednesday, and everyone can vote for the winner through Thursday.
