The often ice-cold relationship between President Obama and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is beginning to thaw.

The sudden cooperation between the Virginia Republican and the Obama White House is surprising, most notably because it’s happening during an election year.

On Tuesday afternoon, the White House issued its official statement of support for a GOP jobs package that Cantor has been touting. Shortly thereafter, Cantor’s office released a statement on Obama’s endorsement.
