From the March 3 edition of Courtside Entertainment Group's The Laura Ingraham Show:
BYRON YORK: I think they've been astonished at the way Trump has brought, not just brought the immigration issue into the race, but with the positions that he has. And he's basically moved the entire conversation to the right in the immigration debate.
LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): But they don't want that debate, right. My point, Byron, is they don't really want that debate. They don't want that debate.
YORK: So now that you have it and you have this candidate who represents the side they don't like, and he's leading the pack, I think, you know, it's a real problem. But here again, it's the anti-democratic nature of this so far. If they can win, fine. But if Trump wins, he wins. And I think a lot of people, and that's what, I think that's what Alex Castellanos was saying, is that look, maybe there was a time--
INGRAHAM: The people are speaking, he said today.
YORK: Yes, and I'll tell you something. I wrote, and you and I have talked about it. I went back and looked at it today. I wrote my first take Trump seriously piece in May of last year. And there were a lot of people--
INGRAHAM: Laughing at you, probably.
YORK: Yeah, well that too. There were a lot of people who could have worked to stop Trump in June, July, August, September, October, November, December. And they didn't do it for,whatever reasons, they didn't do it. And now that millions of people have voted for him, that's when they want to take away the votes? That's not going to work.
INGRAHAM: Well, Byron, they were all saying the more the merrier. The more people in the race the better. And you and I said, I don't know how many times you and I said over the summer there needs to be one conservative alternative to the establishment. The establishment, if they want to survive, they have to get behind one person. Then there has to be a [conservative]. How many times do we need to have this conversation? I mean this is, they didn't want to go with Christie. They didn't want to go with Kasich. They didn't, they only could go with two people, Jeb or Rubio. There was never any alternative. And how they're reaping what they sowed.
