Coulter, Ingraham Praise Dave Brat Win on Fox: ‘Massive Wakeup Call’ to GOP

Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham, two big Dave Brat supporters, joined Megyn Kelly Tuesday night to react to his huge victory over Eric Cantor and touted it as a serious positive for a Republican Party that will hopefully go in a different direction.

Coulter said this is proof positive that amnesty is a losing issue for the Republicans and said more in the GOP should be speaking out against immigration reform, which would mark “the end of the Republican Party” if it happens. She argued it’s a winning issue for the GOP that will prevent the Democrats from getting what they want and prevent the Chamber of Commerce from “buying their way” into Congress.

Meanwhile, Ingraham said this is a huge victory for conservative activists, sending a “massive wakeup call to the Republican party.” She and Kelly also noted how remarkable it was that Brat pulled off the victory when he raised significantly less money (seriously, much less) money than Cantor did.
