NYT: “Largest GOP Donors Declare War On The TEA Party”

This is the only way the TEA party could take over the Republican party. If the GOP takes on the right wing and loses there will be void at the top. The TEA party is not well enough organized yet nor well enough funded to initiate the action.

A new group was recently founded. It’s called The Conservative Victory Project. It’s leader is Steven J. Law.

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. It is the most robust attempt yet by Republicans to impose a new sense of discipline on the party, particularly in primary races.

“There is a broad concern about having blown a significant number of races because the wrong candidates were selected,” said Steven J. Law, the president of American Crossroads, the “super PAC” creating the new project. “We don’t view ourselves as being in the incumbent protection business, but we want to pick the most conservative candidate who can win.”

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.”

Karl Rove and his American Crossroads raised a lot of money for the 2012 election and used it to back losing candidates. What makes anyone think they will do better this time? I fully expect this new group to get some support from Democrats.

    Remember the November 2012 election? Well, 95% Black vote and 70% Hispanic vote went to Obama.
    OK! one asks what’s that got to do with the Tea Party and its attempt to organize? Plenty, is the answer! Most Blacks and Hispanics are receiving some form of government assistance.
    Ever hear of the Puente Coalition (spanish for “point coalition”)?
    Or the several small related Hispanic (or Black) “front” organizations, for example: Respect Arizona, or Citizens for a better Arizona? Texas has theirs! New Mexico, too and Florida as well. North Carolina has their little Black and Hispanic “front” entities as does New York and the Eastern corridor states.
    Then there are Attorneys, mostly involved because their practices have suffered greatly with the economic collapse…so they’re now focusing upon “other venues and streams of income.”
    United with this “Get Out the Vote (and Voter)” efforts are America’s Election process (especially upcoming 2014 and 2016),
    Obama’s Amnesty Drive and these “front organizations'” ability to amass huge amounts of cash in the blink of an eye. Spanish Radio and its correlated media outlets is a jauggernaut Any Tea Party organizer would just marvel at…it’s just stupendous, and all in Spanish, too!!!!!
    In Arizona, a short four weeks ago, a decision to recall sheriff Joe Arpaio was decided!!! BAM!!!! $1.3 million dollars has aready poured into their coffers…only in Maricopa County!!!! Imagine this, across the USA!!!! Tea Partiers Unite, confront this jauggernaut with a national organization from the get go…otherwise, the RNC/GOP will reign supreme.!!!!

      I hate unscrupulous politicos. Karl Rove is the prime example. It’s about having & maintaining power. No issue is important enough to stand on principle for.

      His support of abortion when it was politically expedient, and reversal when it wasn’t, shows it. I don’t like liars.
