After the May primary, details started trickling out about how important a multi-million dollar advertising buy from American CrossRoads — Karl Rove’s PAC — was in securing Thom Tillis’ victory. Media reports indicated that even his internal campaign polling showed him suffering in terms of name ID, and hanging close with his lesser-known primary opponents. Then, Rove’s money came in and Theam Tillis took off.

An article in this month’s Politico Magazine sheds more light on the Rove-Tillis relationship:

(SNIP)

"“Our advertising was terrific,” Rove declared on the call, and Tillis gave credit to Crossroads for his victory, saying in his smooth drawl that the group’s “contribution can’t be overstated.” [...]"

After all that has been uncovered in Mississippi, I would NOT be surprised if Greg Brannon was cheated out of a runoff opportunity in North Carolina. THE WHOLE GOP STINKS!

In less than 24 hours, Karl Rove might wish he never heard of Mississippi

I think even Karl Rove and American Crossroads stayed out of Mississippi that is how much fraud there was.

“They don’t know who the heck Thad is,” said the Republican strategist Karl Rove, of Mississippi’s newly arrived voters. “There is no 40-year history with him, knowing that this is the guy who built up the state’s modern Republican Party. The same with Eric, people who have just gotten to Richmond don’t even know what the House of Delegates is, let alone that he served there.”

Rove is more Tokyo than Texas.

Karl said he would stay out of the runoff, he was involved before that. The real question is, did they really stay out or just go into shadow operations?

Rove can no longer be considered an annoyance. Either he is utterly destroyed or the party is destroyed.
