Eric Cantor's team had millions of dollars to spend on his primary campaign. While much of that money went to ads that apparently failed to win over enough voters, $168,000 was spent on steakhouse dinners. Compare that to Team Brat spending just $122,000 on the entire campaign. Dana Bash has the latest.

Anderson spoke with Chief Congressional Correspondent Dana Bash in the moments after the news broke.
