"The new American Crossroads organization will be run by former RNC Chairman Mike Duncan and Joanne Davidson, a onetime RNC co-chair. Former RNC Chairman Ed Gillespie and former White House adviser Karl
Roveare informally advising the organization.
The day-to-day operations will be handled by Steven Law, who is leaving a top role at the U.S. Chamber of
Commerce. Republican consultant Jim Dyke will also be involved."
So far, the new soft-money group, American Crossroads, has received commitments of almost $30 million and is seeking to raise a total of some $60 million to help dozens of Senate and House incumbents and challengers this fall, say three sources familiar with the new 527. In contrast, at the start of January, the Republican National Committee had only $8.4 million in the bank compared with the $22.8 million it had on had a year earlier when Steele was elected chairman.
Steven J. Law, the general counsel at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and one time executive director of the National Republican Senatorial
Committee, is expected late next week to take over as president and chief executive officer of the 527. American Crossroads is now assembling a board of directors that's likely to include some big donors and a few GOP luminaries.
HUMMMM. They already have 30+mil.
And Steele has the RNC down to 10 Mil.
Looks like the RNC is in deep doo doo.
Didn’t see DeMint’s name in there.. he had a conservative 527 group going, didn’t he?
Precisely. This is the same crowd that gave us the Bush era failures to govern.
DeMints group had raised $1.1 million this year through the end of October, though its tougher to quantify the impact of the movement on Palins PAC and the others mentioned in this report, since they wont be required to report their hauls for the second half of this year until January.
Yup. Have to get rid of INOs like McCain, Crist, Graham-nesty, Bennett and others.
Bush was too much of a RINOs but the GOP failues in some cases were overblown by the TV News media who will demonize us 24x7x365 and Fox/Saudia is not the solution. Cancelling service is the only solution but idiots will accept serfdom for ball games.
Also fake RINO Repubs idiots supporting McCain as in McCain-Feingold - which got us here in this h*ll.
Yep, Mike Duncan is all I needed to see.
Can we PLEASE put pressure on our RNC assclowns to get Steele OUT???!!!!!!! WTF!!
my money is going straight to candidates
“Didnt see DeMints name in there.. he had a conservative 527 group going, didnt he?”
Yep! That’s where my money is going, not this RINO group.
I’m surprised that Charlie Black isn’t involved with this RINO group.
So is mine and it always has.
I despise the RNC as much as the next small-r-republican, but bad, probably biased, reporting drives me up the wall as well.
Let’s hope they use some of it to produce a multitude of video sound bites of ALL THE LIES we’ve been told before and after the 2008 election . You know like all the transparency ,, no more earmarks ,, lobbist ,, draninig the swamp ,, the culture of corruption and on and on ,,, those LIES !
I am spending a little more time and effort in finding out about individual candidates, and I am sending them money directly.
Less skimming by the larger group. Less control by a larger group, also.
What they need to do is resurrect Citizens for the Republic and let some of the old Reagan Staff run the thing.
