Dana Loesch Shares Why She Became a Conservative on The View

Conservative talk-show host Dana Loesch introduced herself to The View audiences when she guest-hosted on Monday. Right off the bat, her co-hosts asked her how she became a conservative after so many years on the left.

Loesch pointed to her becoming a parent as the main reason for her political switch. “I started recognizing that there were a number of platforms with which I didn’t agree, that liberals and progressives hold that I don’t hold anymore,” she explained, such as on fiscal and national-security issues. She went on to share her views on gun rights, abortion, and home-schooling.

On Tuesday, another conservative pundit will sit in on The View: Hot Air’s Mary Katharine Ham.
