Republican political consultant Karl Rove's super PAC is telling its donors it can help Donald Trump win the presidency, despite Rove's public, anti-Trump stance.
According to Politico
, Rove's American Crossroads super PAC held an "investor conference call" this week that outlined how Trump could beat Democrat Hillary Clinton if both are nominated to represent their parties on the November ballot.
The call, reports the website, included Rove, officials from his super PAC, and a poll expert.
A source told Politico, "It's not that they support him, only that if he's the guy, we can do something to stop Hillary."
The report also claims Rove's organization can throw a lifeline to Republican
senators who think their election bids could be an uphill battle due to Trump's polarizing effect on the party.
Earlier this month, Rove said the Republican party should abandon
the presidential aspirations of Trump, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, and Ohio Gov. John Kasich in favor of someone new.
"A fresh face might be the thing that could give us a chance to turn this election and win in November against Hillary," Rove said.
Rove has also offered advice to Trump via the media several times.
Last fall, he said the real estate mogul should stop "belittling"
In March, Rove wrote a commentary for The Wall Street Journal
and said Trump needs to change up his strategy and focus on general election voters, not primary voters.
