Rove’s Move Into Republican Primaries Enrages Tea Party

Leaders of the anti-tax Tea Party are fuming about plans by some Republican strategists to tap the party’s wealthy donors and raise money to help “electable” candidates win primary races.
Jonathan Collegio, a spokesman for Conservative Victory Project, said in an e-mail today that Republicans lost some Senate races last year and in 2010 because of “undisciplined candidates running bad campaigns.” The new group “seeks to help elect the most conservative candidates in Republican primaries who can win in general elections.”
Leaders of the Tea Party and other Republican groups that oppose abortion and gay rights responded by calling Texas political strategist Karl Rove, a founder of the victory project, a “fake conservative” who had “declared war” on the Tea Party.
