(Washington, DC) -- Today is Eric Cantor's last day as a member of Congress. The former House Majority Leader recently decided not to complete his term after losing a Virginia primary race in June. Lawmakers are off on their annual August recess so no ceremony will mark Cantor's formal departure. He bid his colleagues farewell in a speech last month. Cantor is expected to enter the lucrative lobbying sector.
