Top G.O.P. Donors Seek Greater Say in Senate Races

See on Scoop.itDidYouCheckFirst

The Republican Party’s biggest donors are financing a new group to recruit seasoned candidates and protect Senate incumbents from challenges by far-right conservatives and Tea Party enthusiasts.

Greg Russak‘s insight:

Looks like a real quandary for the GOP.

Does Rove’s new big money spin-off from American Crossroads, the Conservative Victory Project, have legitimate claim as the new self-appointed king/queen maker for primaries? How does the partisan rank-and-file feel about the “GOP establishment” trying to bring the party back from the far-right extreme, and is a more centrist approach the formula for winning elections? How big will the fight between Rove and Norquist – and within the partisan ranks, media outlets, and so-called punditry – be, and how does all that in-fighting square with Reagan’s 11th Commandment? It will be interesting to watch.

Proud middle class husband, father, and progressive liberal. Registered Non-Partisan but have much more in common with Democrats than Republicans. Consider Libertarians to be immature and underdeveloped in their understanding of reality. An atheist who doesn't care what you believe so long as you stop pretending the Founding Fathers intended for you to legislatively force your beliefs on everyone else. Laughs out loud in mocking disdain at the abject lunacy of birthers, climate science deniers, and hard core tea partiers. If that offends you, too bad. You're not rational and have no place at the adult table.
