The Crossroads “twins” are affiliated conservative advocacy groups that support Republican candidates oppose Democrats.
Affiliated Republican advocacy groups formed with the help of Ed Gillespie, former chairman of the Republican National Committee, and Karl Rove, an adviser to President George W. Bush.
The presidential election ended last month, but the partisan air wars continue with competing fiscal cliff ads from the conservative Crossroads GPS and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Most of what is in the ads falls into the realm of opinion, but we found a couple points to quibble with in each.
The DCCC ad claims “tea party House Republicans are holding the middle class hostage to get more tax cuts for millionaires,” but nearly six out of seven who would face tax increases under President Obama’s plan do not earn $1 million a year.
