Mitt Romney's Revenge
Mitt Romney went down in flames in the 2012 election, but his private equity / corporate raiding M.O. will be playing a larger role than ever during the 2014 and 2016 elections.
Romney's failed campaign manager, Matt Rhoades, has created America Rising — a centralized opposition research firm. Unlike Political Action Committees and those ubiquitous fake “charity” groups that aren't required to disclose their donors, America Rising is privately owned; profit-driven.
The mission of America Rising will be to dig up dirt on any and all Democratic candidates, nationwide, 24/7/365. Republicans are hoping America Rising will be “the party's most sophisticated, modern, and centralized opposition research effort ever. It is key to the GOP's hopes of resurrecting itself after the soul-crushing presidential defeat of 2012.” [from the linked article]
We'll see. Interesting times ahead.
