美国众议院多数党领袖坎托初选落败

2014-06-13    来源:voanews    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

U.S. Representative Eric Cantor, the majority leader of the Republican-controlled House, suffered a shocking defeat in a primary race for re-election to his congressional seat in Virginia Tuesday.
星期二,争取连任众议员的美国国会众议院多数党领袖、共和党人坎托在维吉尼亚州初选中出人意外地落败。

Cantor was soundly beaten by David Brat, an economics professor at a small college who was backed by the ultraconservative Tea Party movement.
坎托被一所大学的经济学教授布拉特以压倒优势击败。布拉特得到极端保守的茶党运动的支持。

Brat raised little money, but gained support from both voters and conservative media personalities by accusing Cantor of supporting a plan to grant illegal immigrants in the U.S. an easy path to citizenship, which opponents have criticized as an "amnesty."
布拉特只筹到有限的竞选资金,但他指责坎托支持一项使美国境内非法移民轻易得到公民身份的计划,因此获得了选民以及媒体保守派人士的支持。这项计划的反对者批评说,该计划等于对非法移民实行“大赦”。

Many political observers say Cantor's upset loss has scuttled any chance of passing legislation to reform the nation's immigration system.
很多政治观察人士说,坎托的败选使得通过美国移民制度改革法案的希望归于破灭。

Addressing his supporters Tuesday night, Cantor called his loss "disappointing" but stressed that he believes "there's opportunity around the next corner for all of us."
坎托星期二晚上对支持者发表讲话,表示对败选感到失望。但他强调,他相信每个人未来都有机会。(voanews)
