(UPI) -- Conservative columnist Ann Coulter discussed some of the mistakes Republicans have made in recent elections while discussing her new book during an interview with Fox News's Sean Hannity.

Coulter specifically said some GOP consultants are not looking out for the future of the party.

“We’ve lost a lot of Senate elections,” she said. “This is not a party that seems overly concerned with winning elections.”

Coulter went on to say that GOP consultants, prominent Republicans and members of the Tea Party were all to blame for the party's losses. Specifically those who mounted primary attacks on those GOP office holders who are more likely to win elections.

“The problem is we have hucksters, shysters, people ripping off the Republican Party for their own self-aggrandizement, for their own egos, to make money,” she said. "I would put Todd Akin, Newt Gingrich, Liz Cheney, Mark Sanford all in the same boat, and the consultants who persuaded Linda McMahon and John Raese to run.”

“I love Liz Cheney,” Coulter said, “But why should we be having a rancorous primary against a good Republican senator other than for Liz Cheney’s ego?”

When Hannity challenged her comment by saying that Cheney was simply "more conservative," Coulter disagreed.

“We are not concentrating on winning. We are allowing shysters to take advantage of the Republican Party,” she insisted.
