Virginia Rep. Eric Cantor , the second-ranking Republican in the House, was a big donor last month to 2010 Republican campaigns through his political action committee.

Cantor, who is serving his fifth term in the Richmond-area 7th District and his first as House Minority Whip, gave $82,500 to a mix of Republican incumbents and candidates from ERIC PAC, which stands for Every Republican Is Crucial Political Action Committee. The committee made the disclosure in a filing Tuesday to the Federal Election Commission.  

Half of the 14 Republican incumbents who received $5,000 checks from ERIC PAC are serving their first full terms: Bill Cassidy , John Fleming and Steve Scalise of Louisiana; Erik Paulsen of Minnesota; Blaine Luetkemeyer of Missouri; Christopher Lee of New York; and Tom Rooney of Florida.
