How did Eric Cantor's team spend its campaign cash?

Eric Cantor's team had millions of dollars to spend on his primary campaign.

Compare that to Team Brat spending just $122,000 on the entire campaign. Dana Bash has the latest.

Anderson discussed the impact of Cantor's loss with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, GOP strategist Ana Navarro and Chief National Correspondent John King.

True Politics: What does Mike Huckabee's "libido" comment mean for GOP efforts to attract women voters?

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee is a longtime critic of the Affordable Care Act. At the Republican party's annual winter meeting today this is what he said about the law's birth control coverage:

"If the democrats want to insult the women of America by making them believe that they are helpless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing them a prescription each month for birth control because they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of the government, then so be it."

This comes as Republicans are working to win over women voters ahead of the midterm elections. Anderson takes a look at the GOP's efforts.

Democrats were quick to fire back. Dana Bash has the latest on the fallout.
