Tuesday’s primaries were “landslide” wins of “historic proportions” for Republicans and the tea party, talk radio host Rush Limbaugh said on Wednesday.

The Democrats “have been rocked with what happened yesterday and last night,” Limbaugh said. “Yesterday was the biggest wakeup call they’ve had in 3 ½ years.”

Tea party-backed Indiana State Treasurer Richard Mourdock crushed incumbent Sen. Richard Lugar by more than 20 percentage points. Lugar has held his seat since 1977.

“This was a landslide of historic proportions. It was a tea party victory from top to bottom,” Limbaugh said. “There’s nothing Lugar could have done.”

In North Carolina’s primary, 20 percent of voters chose “No Preference” against President Barack Obama, he added, while in West Virginia, inmate Keith Judd, who is currently serving a 17 ½-year prison sentence for extortion, took 41 percent of the Democratic presidential primary vote.

“Obama has now lost eight West Virginia counties to a federal inmate,” Limbaugh said.

The message sent out is that “moderate, inside-the-Beltway, GOP establishment Republicanism is not the future of the Republican Party at the ballot box,” Limbaugh said.

“The people in this country don’t want any more of this. They’ve had their fill.”
