If Brown wins, House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va) and Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) will lead the rabble-rousing sure to follow the potentially-monumental GOP upset in the Bay State.

Cantor raises money for the NRCC, and was recently splattered all over the airwaves by publicly rebutting RNC Chairman Micheal Steele's claim that the GOP isn't ready to lead. The National Journal reports that McCarthy has several media appearances lined up after this election.

McCarthy has also raised money for the NRCC, and will be doing at least one public media spot after this critical juncture. He is in charge of recruiting Democrats in 2010.

Both will have a heavy hand in translating the special election victory into a more sweeping GOP victory during the mid-term elections this November.
