**House Majority Leader Cantor Loses Republican Primary to Tea Party Candidate **
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.
Cantor was soundly beaten by David Brat, an economics professor at a small college who was backed by the ultraconservative Tea Party movement.
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."
Many political observers say Cantor's upset loss has scuttled any chance of passing legislation to reform the nation's immigration system.
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."
**South Korea Police Raid Compound in Search for Fugitive Businessman**
Thousands of South Korean police raided a religious compound Wednesday in their search for a businessman wanted in connection with an April ferry sinking that killed over 300 people.
Yoo Byung-un is the head of a family that runs the Chonghaejin Marine Company, which owned and operated the Sewol ferry. The 72-year-old, who has evaded a nationwide manhunt for almost a month, is wanted on embezzlement, negligence, and tax evasion charges.
About 6,000 police officers, many in riot gear, stormed a large religious complex belonging to the Evangelical Baptist Church, where Yoo was a co-founder. After a brief standoff, police entered the facility, which is about 80 kilometers south of Seoul.
President Park Geun-hye, whose government has been criticized for its response to the ferry disaster, on Tuesday told her cabinet that Yoo must be brought to justice. Investigators are also determining whether lax safety standards and poor maintenance led to the disaster.
