Iowa Gov. Branstad to Rove: ‘Stay Out’.
Karl Rove, who is currently at war with the conservatives of the Tea Party, and who has been instrumental in the defeat of a number of Tea Party backed candidates, has been asked to keep his super PAC out of Iowa.
Governor Terry Branstad told Rove that it is not smart for groups from outside Iowa to be attacking candidates in that state.
Rove has been attacking Representative Steve King, who is in the running for the Senate seat being vacated by Tom Harkin. Since he is a conservative, Rove’s PAC has been smearing him, and accusing him of having the “Todd Akin problem”, and that everything he has ever said is going to be hung around his neck.
Yes, the Republican establishment is wanting to eat the conservatives. We have no place in that party.
Thanks to Gov. Branstad for having the sense to tell Rove to get lost.
In another sign of the Times, the California Republican party has put Ben Shapiro in a keynote speaking position formerly to be filled by Rove, supposedly due to a scheduling conflict. Perhaps this is an attempt to throw an olive branch to conservatives.
Pharmer believes that the Republican party is too far gone, and that much more pain, and a great deal of shrinkage, is to befall Americans before there is a return to constitutional and conservative principles.
