Karl Rove’s Super PAC, Crossroads GPS, and the Koch Brother’s Americans for Prosperity have given up the ghost in the Keystone State and pulled their advertising dollars, conceding victory to President Obama.
To date, Crossroads GPS has forked over $2.8 million in advertising in Pennsylvania, while Americans for Prosperity have wasted $3.6 million, all to no avail.
However, it should be noted that Pennsylvania is one of the few states that has turned the tables on right-wing domination — whether by chance or through pressure. 16 of their legislators have dumped their membership in ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council, funded by the Brothers Koch, and their state’s Supreme Court seems to have little to no patience for some of their “model legislation.”
Still, throwing that amount of money out the window toward a fruitless endeavor kinda makes me want to heave – it’s obscene and obnoxious – but it gives me hope, in a weird, twisted sort of way.
Just because you have the most dollars, doesn’t mean you’re gonna win – at least in Pennsylvania.
