No. 1 target at Democratic party: Karl Rove
Democrats were happy that President Obama beat Mitt Romney tonight, but there was one name they mentioned almost as much as Romney: Karl Rove.
The Democrats, gathered at The Westin Seattle, gleefully celebrated how Rove’s Crossroads GPS Super PAC did not win every race it invested in.
Nobody celebrated more than attorney general hopeful Bob Ferguson, who weathered millions in attack ads from national groups (although he also benefited from national ads attacking opponent Reagan Dunn).
“I have one message for Karl Rove and the $3 million his Super PAC spent in this state,” said Ferguson, who was leading his race. “The office of Attorney General is not for sale.”
Dwight Pelz, the chairman of the state Democrats, then took the stage and called for a moment of silence “for Karl Rove and the Koch Brothers” and all of their wasted money.
