TULSA (AP) -- The U.S. House majority leader traveled to Oklahoma to raise money for a Republican congressional candidate who spent much of his campaign funds on a successful bid to beat a five-term GOP incumbent .
Congressman Eric Cantor of Virginia had backed John Sullivan in the June primary, but challenger Jim Bridenstine upset Sullivan to move on to the November general election. Also in the race are businessman John Olson, a Democrat, and airline pilot Craig Allen, who is running as an independent.
Cantor said it was important to travel to Tulsa to meet Bridenstine and headlined a breakfast Friday where seats went for $250 to $2,500.
In June, Bridenstine upset Sullivan by aligning himself with the tea party and running on a platform calling for fresh voices in Washington.
