$1 BILLION TO DEFEAT PRESIDENT OBAMA
Karl Rove, the Koch brothers, and a $1 billion pledge to defeat President Obama.
Do we have your attention?
Politico is reporting today that Republican super PACs like Rove’s Crossroads GPS and other right-wing groups are planning to spend $1 billion to defeat President Obama and take full control of Congress—with $400 million expected from the Koch brothers alone. To put that figure in perspective, John McCain raised $370 million for his entire 2008 presidential campaign.
That means Rove and the Kochs could determine the outcome of November’s elections. As MSNBC’s Steve Benen notes, “Obama, in other words, is going to face a far-right wall of at least $1.8 billion between now and Election Day. To say this is without precedent in a major democracy is a dramatic understatement.”
And that is why May 31’s fundraising deadline is so important. If you donate today, you can help level the playing field for President Obama and Democrats up and down the ticket.
But more than that, a strong showing of grassroots Democratic donors sends the message to Republicans that Rove, the Koch brothers, and their ilk can’t just buy their way to victory on November 6.
