Scoop: Cantor Hits Google's Mountain View HQ Today

April 3, 2012
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor heads to the Mountain View, California headquarters of Google today to meet with senior company executives including co-founder Sergey Brin, SVP and general counsel Kent Walker and Google Ventures managing partner Bill Maris, according to an official familiar with the meeting. 

The meeting will focus on job creation by Google Ventures, the search giant's venture capital arm. Cantor is interested in understanding what Congress can do to help entrepreneurs, start ups and emerging companies create jobs. Also scheduled to attend the meeting is Google Ventures partner Rick Klau and Google vice president Milo Medin

Cantor arrived in Silicon Valley on Sunday and has met with early stage companies and venture capital firms as well as holding several fundraisers. He leaves the Valley today and is scheduled to attend President Barack Obama's signing of the JOBS Act on Thursday.

UPDATE: Cantor's office put out a statement about the visit this afternoon saying that, in addition to the meeting, the majority leader toured the Googleplex and tested one of the companies automated cars. 

"We need to continue to work together on policies that will help startups, entrepreneurs and small businesses harness the power of the free market, so the Googles of the future will still call America their home. Their success is essential to our global competitiveness, economic growth and job creation," Cantor said in the statement. 

Google's top lobbyist Susan Molinari added, "It is always great to have members of Congress visit Silicon Valley and learn more about what the Internet industry is doing to encourage innovation and create economic opportunity."
