The Republican-friendly American Crossroads group says it has raised more than $13 million since President Obama blasted it a week ago. The group and its campaign arm Crossroads GPS have easily surpassed their initial fundraising goal of $50 million, which has now been increased to $65 million, spokesman Jonathan Collegio told The Hill.
American Crossroads is backed by crack Republican strategists Ed Gillespie and Karl Rove.
Obama accused American Crossroads and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce of possibly receiving money from foreign donors. But the groups say that’s not the case.
Obama’s sniping has only increased support for American Crossroads, permitting it to spend $10 million more on House races and $5 million more on Senate races, Collegio says.
The Chamber of Commerce also promises to “ramp up” it activities before Election Day.
