Karl Rove Starts New RINOPAC: Specifically aimed at ousting Liberty and Tea Party candidates

• Daily
The battle for the heart and soul of the Republican Party has begun. On one side is the Tea Party. On the other side stand Karl Rove and his establishment team, posing as tacticians while quietly undermining conservatism.

Yesterday, the New York Times reported that the “biggest donors in the Republican Party” have joined forces with Karl Rove and Steven J. Law, president of American Crossroads, to create the Conservative Victory Project. The Times reports that this new group will dedicate itself to “recruit seasoned candidates and protect Senate incumbents from challenges by far-right conservatives and Tea Party enthusiasts who Republican leaders worry could complicate the party’s effort to win control of the Senate.”

As a result of Rove being (correctly) labelled a RINO for this endeavor, there is now an immediate push to de-fang the term RINO as being over-used and no longer a useful descriptor.
