Karl Rove "Spending Big Bucks" To Save Kelly Ayotte

Oct 07, 2015

Another one of Kelly Ayotte’s special interest backers is spending millions this week to try to save her campaign.

NH1 reports, “One Nation… will launch a 17-day $1.4 million broadcast, cable, digital and radio ad campaign in the Granite State.”

Who is One Nation?

One Nation is part of Karl Rove’s “constellation of Crossroads organizations” and is specifically focused on saving vulnerable Republican senators in 2016. Already this year, this dark money group spent $2 million propping up Republican senators, including Kelly Ayotte, that back their anti-middle class agenda. Now, Rove is pouring another $1.4 million into New Hampshire to attempt to mask Ayotte’s record of voting to defund Planned Parenthood.

Like American Crossroads and Crossroads GPS, One Nation is headed up by Steven Law, who also chairs the Senate Leadership Fund, another arm of the Rove “empire.”

While it’s been reported that One Nation is a “new” (c)4 addition to the Crossroads network, Open Secrets found that the group was a renamed version of an entity previously known as the Alliance for America’s Future, a nonprofit affiliated with the Alliance for Freedom. Open Secrets notes that the takeover was “likely… because the group had the one thing that has been elusive to Crossroads since its founding in 2010: An approved application for tax exemption from the IRS.”

Karl Rove, the Koch brothers, U.S. Chamber, and other dark money special interests are already spending millions to prop up Kelly Ayotte. Why? Ayotte puts billionaires and corporate special interests first, not New Hampshire.
