Eric Cantor Plans Stint at Harvard as Visiting Fellow

Eric Cantor, the former House majority leader, will join Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government as a visiting fellow in early April, the school said Thursday.

The Virginia Republican lost his seat in Congress when he was defeated in a June 2014 primary. After leaving office, Mr. Cantor was hired as vice chairman and managing director of investment bank Moelis & Co. He will remain in that post.

Mr. Cantor will join several other previously announced spring fellows at the Kennedy School’s Institute of Politics. Among others: Kay Hagan, the North Carolina Democrat who lost her Senate seat in November, and Matt Lira, the former deputy executive director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

In a tweet Thursday morning, Mr. Lira described himself as “beyond excited” that Mr. Cantor would be joining him at Harvard. “A true thrill for me and invaluable for the community,” he said.

Visiting fellows typically meet with students, lead discussions about current events, share their experiences in public life and participate in public-policy classes, the Kennedy School said.
