Conservative writer Ann Coulter is enthusiastically endorsing Tea Party-backed candidate David Brat in his primary challenge of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) in the upcoming June primary, citing Cantor's support for immigration reform.

In her nationally syndicated column, Ms. Coulter wrote that her endorsement was based on Brat's opposition to Cantor's immigration policies. Ms. Coulter labeled Cantor a "Maniacal Amnesty Supporter" in the column, and described him as "amnesty-addled."

"Cantor says 'immigration reform could be an economic boon to this country,'" wrote Coulter. "You don't have to be an economics professor [like Dave Brat] to know that bringing in millions of workers is not 'an economic boon' to the workers already here. (If only we could bring in millions of workers to compete for Cantor's job.)"

Coulter applauded Brat, who she wrote "responded to Cantor's baby-talk, saying immigration 'lowers wages, adds to unemployment, and the taxpayer pays the tab for any benefits to folks coming in.'" 

"Anyone opposing an incumbent Republican for any reason other than amnesty is a fraud or an idiot," Ms. Coulter argued. "Right now, immigration and Obamacare are the only things that matter. Since every Republican voted against Obamacare, that leaves only immigration," she added.

Ms. Coulter wrote that Brat was one of three men who are challenging incumbent Republican supporters of amnesty in the primaries who pass her test of conservative campaign credibility "with flying colors."

The other two are Dr. Greg Brannon, running in North Carolina's Republican U.S. Senate primary, and Frank Roche, challenging a Republican in North Carolina's 2nd Congressional District, who Ms. Coulter describes as "the lying, amnesty-supporting Renee Ellmers."

"They're smart, attractive, articulate and unlikely to ever use the phrase 'legitimate rape,' " Coulter wrote of Brat, Brannon, and Roche.

Breitbart News reported on Monday that Brat, a long-shot challenger, had approximately $50,000 cash on hand on March 31. In contrast, Representative Cantor reported more than $2 million cash on hand on March 31 in his recently filed Federal Election Commission report for the first quarter of 2014
