Donations to Roves’s PACs Drop 98% after Attack on Conservatives


From Breitbart:

After wasting nearly $325 million during the 2012 election cycle with nothing to show for it and then declaring war on the Tea Party, donations to Karl Rove’s three Crossroads groups decreased by 98% last year. The groups reportedly raised a paltry $6.1 million combined in 2013.

Rove runs Crossroads GPS, American Crossroads, and the Conservative Victory Project Super PAC, which was formed this year to wage war against conservatives. Rove’s two groups raised $325 million in 2012 and about $70 million in 2010. As Politico notes, though, “Rove added a third group to the network in 2013, forming the Conservative Victory Project to counterbalance the influence of Tea Party and conservative grassroots forces in GOP primaries.”

Since then, as Breitbart News reported, “Rove’s organization has been so tarnished among the conservative base that candidates fear donors will not contribute to any group associated with him.” Aware of this, Rove’s Crossroads network has reloaded with groups that share donors but are technically not affiliated on paper with them.

All three of the groups “are permitted to accept unlimited corporate and individual contributions,” and donations to Crossroads GPS, a nonprofit, are even tax deductible.


This is what happens when you throw your base under the bus.

    Be afraid, Karl. Be VERY afraid.
    The Conservatives are coming, and we want RINO blood !

  2. Fellow Patriot says:

    Looks like the neo”conservatives” are shaking in their wee little boots. Let’s finish the job!

    Karl Rove: Architect of GOP disaster.
    Ever think maybe HE is the closet Dem embedded in the GOP to bring it down??

  4. Kathy says:

    He lost most, if not all, of his credibility in 2012 and is trying to remain relevant, but why would anyone work so hard just to be middle of the road?

  5. For traitors, like him, there is nothing better than rope – IMHO.

  6. CW says:

    Will they FINALLY get the message or dig in their heels and remain stuck on stupid? I’m guess it will be the latter.

      I expect they will sing their song until their ship is complete sunk then afterwards complain from the sidelines. The lamestream will give him a voice. Ditto with Hannity. I never understood that, which is why I stopped listening.

  7. The drop could not happen to a more deserving turn-coat.

  8. Mrs AL says:

    I had no idea that it fell by that much, Hardnox. What a kick in the head, eh? Well, when you decide to sit on the fence instead of diving into the fight to preserve the country, guess that’s what happens!

    • Hardnox says:

      A kick in the head indeed. They have taken conservatives for granted far too long. Now they will pay the price. Donations to the RNC are in the gutter too.

      People have gotten wiser… they now give directly to the candidates that best represent their interests.

  9. Buck says:

    Rush had a point on today he picked up from some blogger or other.
    The theory of why the GOP establishment is so in bed with amnesty is because they plan on winning in ’14 but don’t want to win big as they did in ’10. They want to pizz the Tea Party supporters off enough they stay home November allowing them to win by only a few points.

    My take on that would be they keep it up they will lo0se their asses in the primaries to the Tea Party…

    • Hardnox says:

      That’s an interesting theory. It does make sense. They are getting awful cocky thinking they will win. I agree the primaries will wipe the smiles off the establishment’s faces.
