Dará asistencia al candidato republicano en la elección general.
American Crossroads, a super PAC that reports to the Federal Election Commission, raked in $18.4 million last year, including a $5 million donation from Texas tycoon Harold Simmons, plus another $2 million from Contran, a company that he controls, according to Crossroads sources.
Crossroads GPS, the nonprofit group that shares leadership and offices with American Crossroads, pulled in $31.6 million last year, a ratio similar to what the two groups accounted for in 2010 when they raised a combined $71 million.
The two Republican groups were launched in 2010 by GOP super consultants Karl Rove and Ed Gillespie.
They are now getting fundraising help from former Mississippi governor and ex-party chairman Haley Barbour. The groups have publicly said that they're shooting to raise at least $240 million to help the GOP win the White House and control both houses of Congress.
