American Conservatives Take A Victory Lap After Brexit Vote

June 24, 2016 10:51 a.m.

While the vote sparked a global economic panic and drove Prime Minister David Cameron to announce he would step down, it was cause for major celebration among some American conservatives.

Here are just a few of their responses:
