A bristling group of 25 traditional conservatives are out to protect one of their own in a new push against the "establishment Republicans" of Karl Rove's American Crossroads.
With November elections just around the corner, two Republican-friendly groups independently announced Tuesday that they collectively were spending $17 million to influence races in several battleground states nationwide.
A year ago, two top Republican strategists sat down for lunch at the venerable Mayflower Hotel, five blocks from the White House, calculating how to exploit the voter anger they had seen erupt at Democratic town-hall meetings that summer.
In a campaign season of anti-establishment ferment, some of the Republican Party's best-known insiders are building an ambitious fundraising machine for the fall elections and beyond.
"We strongly encourage members to educate their constituents on this issue in August," Mr. Law says.
"Obama's weak leadership has yielded weak results and a weaker America," said American Crossroads President and CEO Steven Law. "Staying on Obama's course means a weaker America every day — that's what this election is about."
