This might not come as a surprise to many, heck, actually anyone who knows the depths the Republican Establishment class of professional liars; but thanks to the continued digging and efforts of Charles C Johnson, and Team McDaniel in Mississippi, Karl Rove is exposed yet again. LIAR !
Rove is not called a “Decepticon” for nothing:
Reconcile the above 6/20/2014 contribution of $50,000 from Karl Rove and American Crossroads with their prior statements:
June 11th – […] In effect — the GOP establishment is doing what they are supposed to do — going all in for one of their own.
The push comes after the high profile American Crossroads super PAC announced it would not put money towards Cochran’s campaign to fend off McDaniel in the June 24 run-off. Outside groups spent more than $8 million in the primary, an extraordinary amount in Mississippi.
Defending incumbents in primaries this cycle has been a focus for Republican leadership and the NRSC since the start of 2013. (link)
Or this one…
June 6th – […] The senator, [Cochran] however, looks to be getting a boost from his colleagues in Washington, many of whom have said they plan to again donate the maximum amount to his campaign. His fellow Mississippian, Sen. Roger Wicker (R), said he’s already making fundraising calls for the incumbent.
And that help will be pivotal to his chances of holding on to the seat.
While national conservative groups have offered their support for McDaniel’s bid, establishment Republicans have been somewhat more lukewarm about supporting Cochran, who enters the race the underdog. At least one major establishment spending group, American Crossroads, is sitting the race out.
But the NRSC and the Chamber of Commerce are backing Cochran, wary of the chance that, if McDaniel wins the nomination, he could put the seat in play for Democrats. They’re running former Rep. Travis Childers in case of such an outcome. (link)
