The Republican National Committee has chosen a Karl Rove-linked voter data project called Liberty Works to help it compete with Democrats in the digital arena.
Liberty Works will team up with Data Trust, whose chairman of the board is former RNC Chairman Mike Duncan, committee spokeswoman Kirsten Kukowski confirmed to POLITICO.
Basically, RNC is going to provide the data, and then Liberty Works will build the platform, and Data Trust will manage it all, Kukowski said. This is kind of in the beginning stages. There are legal issues that were going to iron out.
Several data entities one of which had connections to the Koch brothers had been competing for the partnership, POLITICO previously reported. Roll Call first reported Wednesday on the selection of Liberty Works and Data Trust.
Rove, who had been working with Liberty Works founder Dick Boyce, pitched donors in New York last month for the $15 million-plus data project and also talked it up in March to top GOP insiders at an invitation-only conference in Georgia.
Jonathan Collegio, a spokesman for Roves American Crossroads, previously told POLITICO that Liberty Works was a stand-alone effort, and Boyce reportedly distanced himself from Rove in conversations with prospective donors.

Rove is wrong for America.
Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.
Everything about Rove is wrong.
They called me once long ago for money. I told them to wait, went got my air horn, and let it loose. They haven’t called me since.
I get calls on my cell phone all the time from a 202 area code.....I know it’s them....I just don’t answer....they’ve slowed down their calls lately...course I return their letters with, er, comments.
RNC - we make the decisions & plans to lose big in 2014 & 2016. After that, USA won’t exist but we on the board will have retired rich.
He is a big political target and getting bigger for those of us with big government. I have a feeling his allies are in for a big surprise next election cycle.
