I myself would not consider the ousting of 1 opposition candidate a Tea Party victory in a major election where many seats in congress were up for grab but since this is the first time in U.S. history the house majority leader fell victim to
the vote in an extremely important republican primary and lost to an unknown Tea Party candidate the ousting of Eric Cantor will be taken as a single victory. The ousting of Eric Cantor is seen by all as a major upset in all circles of politics because he is one of the major rino republicans that were targeted for removal and the odds of removing Eric Cantor from his elected position were slim to none. But because of Laura Ingraham and her associates in arms Ann Coulter and Mark Levin this upset victory for the Tea Party was achieved.
Laura Ingraham was leading personality in this historic upset but Ann Coulter and Mark Levin played major rolls in assisting in the effort to remove Eric Cantor.
Below are some passages from news organizations reporting on this historic GOP uspset by the Tea Party:
Fox's Megyn Kelly: Ingraham's Support Was "Instrumental" In Brat's Victory Over Cantor. During Fox News' live coverage of Rep. Cantor's primary defeat, Fox host Megyn Kelly said Laura Ingraham, Ann Coulter, and Mark Levin "were instrumental, perhaps, in causing this event tonight." When she interviewed Ingraham later in the show, Kelly more firmly called her "instrumental" in Cantor's defeat, noting that "she campaigned for Brat, she rallied for Brat, and must be very pleased with the results tonight.
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor Loses In Primary To Dave Brat. On the night of June 10, Rep. Cantor lost in the Republican primary to his conservative challenger Dave Brat, widely considered a longshot to win the race
Last night, after Dave Brat’s stunning upset victory over House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham joined Fox News Channel’s Megyn Kelly by phone. Both women were happy with the Brat victory and noted that it sends a powerful message to the GOP establishment.
Laura Ingraham, for her part, actually worked to get Dave Brat elected. Even so, she told Megyn Kelly that she was surprised he won. She also claimed that his victory is “a massive wake-up call for the Republican party.”
