Karl Rove’s Crossroads Groups
Two groups formed by influential Republican operative Karl Rove spent more on television and radio ads in the presidential race than any other "super PAC" or advocacy group in recent weeks. The super political action committee American Crossroads and its sister nonprofit, Crossroads GPS, together spent $47.4 million since September 10. Ads funded by the groups have been hitting President Barack Obama's economic record in a handful of crucial swing states. These groups have pledged to spend some $300 million to help elect Mitt Romney to the White House and Republicans to Congress.
