Warning: “Conservative Victory Project” is NOT Conservative—RINO All the Way!
From the same idiots who gave us Mitt Romney comes another brilliant new plan to eliminate any Conservative candidates from entering the hallowed halls of the Senate.
Apparently, Karl Rove and his super PAC buddies have forgotten that they are the main reasons Obama is still sitting in the White House:
Top Donors to Republicans Seek More Say in Senate Races
COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa — The biggest donors in the Republican Party are financing a new group to recruit seasoned candidates and protect Senate incumbents from challenges by far-right conservatives and Tea Party enthusiasts who Republican leaders worry could complicate the party’s efforts to win control of the Senate.
The group, the Conservative Victory Project, is intended to counter other organizations that have helped defeat establishment Republican candidates over the last two election cycles.

The effort would put a new twist on the Republican-vs.-Republican warfare that has consumed the party’s primary races in recent years. In effect, the establishment is taking steps to fight back against Tea Party groups and other conservative organizations that have wielded significant influence in backing candidates who ultimately lost seats to Democrats in the general election.
The first test of the group’s effort to influence primary races could come here in Iowa, where some Republicans are already worrying about who will run for the seat being vacated by Senator Tom Harkin, a Democrat. It is the first open Senate seat in Iowa since 1974, and Republicans are fearful of squandering a rare opportunity.
The Conservative Victory Project, which is backed by Karl Rove and his allies who built American Crossroads into the largest Republican super PAC of the 2012 election cycle, will start by intensely vetting prospective contenders for Congressional races to try to weed out candidates who are seen as too flawed to win general elections.
In other words, ANY strong Conservative candidate is gonna’ be viewed as a weed and pulled…Explore posts in the same categories: Abuse of Power, politics
