Laura Ingraham said in her Ingraham Angle commentary that Democrat Doug Jones' victory in Alabama had "zero to do with substance" and everything to do with a flawed Republican.
Ingraham said that "salacious allegations" against Judge Roy Moore (R-Ala.) drowned out any messages of policy or ideology.
She said that in the wake of "finger-pointing" at President Trump, Steve Bannon and Leader McConnell, voters should look to Moore himself.
Ingraham said she spoke to Rep. Gary Palmer (R-Ala.), a possible 2020 challenger to Jones, who agreed with her view.
She added that McConnell (R-Ky.) "rushed in and tried to protect" incumbent Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.) in his unsuccessful primary bid.
She said consultants for the third candidate, conservative Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) were warned not to oppose Strange.
Ingraham said that dynamic may have contributed to the dysfunction of the election.
