Six Republicans are establishing a new political organization, the American Action Network, to organize “grass-roots support” and raise funds for the November 2010 mid-term elections.
The organization will be a 501(c)4 with Rep. Eric Cantor’s (R-VA) senior aide, Rob Collins, serving as the first executive director. Founding Republican leadership: former Florida Governor, Jeb Bush, former Minnesota Senator, Norm Coleman, Republican strategist Ed Gillespie, Republican donor Fred Malek, and former GW Bush adviser, the Architect, Karl Rove.
Establishment conservatives apparently…finally, get it…maybe: grass-roots patriots mean business, and part of that business is NEVER supporting limp-wristed pretty boys and girls for candidates?
Is this a “move over Tea Parties, the big boys have arrived?”
If the mindset is constitutional conservatism, American Action Network will succeed. If the mindset is “business as usual,” they better start looking for other sources for election funding.
At least Newt Gingrich isn’t a part of this bunch.
