Founded by Karl Rove and former Republican National Committee Chairman, Ed Gillespie, this new conservative group has been established as a "shadow RNC" to solicit contributions from wealthy conservative Republicans and corporations. The organization claims to have raised $30 million and is well on its way to its $52 million goal. These resources will be used to target Democrats with a massive media campaign in the midterm elections. Given the background of this group's leadership, we can expect this organization to play fast and loose with the facts.
