Gingrich Says Rove is Wrong

Newt Gingrich takes apart Karl Rove's plan to ensure "more electable" Republicans win primaries in 2014.

"While Rove would like to argue his 'national nomination machine' will protect Republicans from candidates like those who failed in Missouri and Indiana, that isn't the bigger story. Republicans lost winnable senate races in Montana, North Dakota, Ohio, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Florida. So in seven of the nine losing races, the Rove model has no candidate-based explanation for failure. Our problems are deeper and more complex than candidates."

"Handing millions to Washington based consultants to destroy the candidates they dislike and nominate the candidates they do like is an invitation to cronyism, favoritism and corruption."
