Karl Rove and His Super PAC Press On

Despite a terrible showing on Election Day, Karl Rove believes that American Crossroads and its more secretive issue-advocacy arm, Crossroads GPS -- which allows donors to remain anonymous -- are here to stay, the Washington Post reports.

"Rove is pondering new missions for Crossroads to address weaknesses laid bare by the GOP's back-to-back failures to win the White House and the fact that the party fell short when expected to win back the Senate."

"Where until now it battled only in general elections and against Democrats, Crossroads is considering whether to start picking sides in Republican primaries. The idea would be to boost the candidate it deems most electable and avoid nominating the kind of flawed and extreme ones who cost the party what should otherwise have been easy Senate wins in Florida, Missouri and Indiana."
