Karl Rove’s independent expenditure group American Crossroads is jumping from the television screen into the ground game.
The 527 organization announced today it will run a get out the vote effort in Nevada and seven other states. Republicans in Nevada are sorely in need of a ground game, which has been largely absent for the party since President Bush’s last victory in 2004.
American Crossroads will spend $10 million in the eight states on its ground game and will coordinate with other independent groups to augment the effort targeting conservative voters.
The group has already spent heavily on television ads against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
