#NCSEN BFFs: Thom Tillis + Karl Rove
It’s becoming more and more clear that House speaker Thom Tillis is throwing himself into the loving embrace of the DC Republican establishment. He’s already signed on with campaign consultant Paul Shumaker — considered an arch-enemy by many Tea Party and grassroots activists. Fellow Shumaker client Richard Burr is aiding Tillis’s fundraising efforts Inside The Beltway.
Now comes word that His Royal Highness Karl Rove is taking an interest in joining Theam Tillis:
[…] Tillis is scheduled to appear at a reception on Oct. 3 that is being planned as part of the American Crossroads Summit, the super PAC formed by Rove, the former chief strategist for former President George W. Bush.
He is listed in a reception with the “top 2014 Senate candidates.” along with Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Tom Cotton of Arkansas, Steve Daines of Montana, and Mike McFadden of Minnesota. The event will be held at the House of Sweden. Then is he scheduled to attend a cocktail reception at Four Seasons Hotel that includes Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida.
This makes Tillis the second GOP candidate to be invited to a national political “beauty contest”. Greg Brannon got rave reviews for his appearance at blogger / radio talkshow host Erick Erickson’s Red State gathering in New Orleans.

Karl Rove is such a despicable snake, I think I would vote for a Democrat before I would vote for a Rove candidate, and I don’t normally even consider voting for a Democrat. The stench of Tillis gets worse when you add the stench of Rove to it.
Folks who don’t follow Rove closely and don’t understand the animus towards him should be aware that he is one of a number of establishment types preaching that conservatives need to give up their insistence on “purity” and not be so unbending on constitutional principles
What I don’t understand is his reputation as a political strategist…a chimpanzee could have engineered two terms for Bush against the likes of Gore and Kerry.
Rove has also declared war on nominating conservatives for the Senate. Never mind that the Rove establishment moderates bombed out last election in Senate races we should have won like North Dakota and Montana and he wasted gazillions in states we never had a chance in like California.
I agree completely.
Tillis and Rove…now that’s about enough to make me heave. One more reason why to work really hard to elect Greg Brannon.
