Coulter has just published a new book “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3 – Especially a Republican,” in which she makes a case that Republican activists groups, including some that have the support of Cruz, should stop mounting primary challenges to Republican members of Congress in an effort to replace less conservative Republicans.
“I think it’s an enormous mistake,” Coulter said. “I’m going to have a chat with my love, Ted Cruz, because he’s been so magnificent in everything else. I’m thinking we want to concentrate on taking out or replacing Democratic senators with Republican senators in Louisiana, in Arkansas, in Montana, in West Virginia, and Alaska. Those are big fat targets.”
She expressed particular irritation with a current primary challenge to replace Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., with Tea Party candidate Matt Bevin.
“They’re driving me crazy on that,” Coulter said. “Mitch McConnell is a fantastic conservative. He was the Ted Cruz on campaign finance reform. Did they not remember who Mitch McConnell is? … He was the Republican leader in the Senate when not one single Republican voted for Obamacare.”
