US Senator John Thune reacts to Virginia primary results

South Dakota's US Senator John Thune has used the same polling company Eric Cantor used.

Polling results showed Eric Cantor was up 34 percent, but a political newcomer ended up beating him in the Virginia primary.

Thune says when campaigning you have to work very hard and never take anything for granted.
He says people will probably study why the polling did not detect what was going on the ground.

"Clearly there is going to be a lot of discussion about what sort of polling techniques were used, and why didn't they suggest earlier on that this might end up being the outcome," said Thune.

The polling company both Cantor and Thune used is McLaughlin and Associates.
