"I think a populist pitch is a winner across the country — in Hispanic, white, black communities, I'm telling you it is a winner. We can peel off some minority voters, focus on their wages, their renewal. I'm telling you, it's a winner," she said. "Not this old Chamber of Commerce faux-conservative big business message. That is a crony capitalist disaster. And I'm sorry, but that's what the Bush folks represent and that's what the Bush nomination will do. It will lose."

Ingraham attacked Bush and like-minded Republicans for suporting "Common Core, amnesty, an addiction to these trade deals that end up completely deep-sixing the American worker," before warning that "If Republicans do not unite and say no to the Bush nomination he will become the nominee" because he'll be the best-funded and best-organized candidate.
