CROSSROADS GPS

Along with super PAC American Crossroads, this nonprofit was launched by the GOP strategist Karl Rove. Together, the two groups plan to spend more than $200 million this cycle to elect conservatives. Along with Americans for Prosperity, Crossroads is one of the two most influential nonprofits this cycle. Although the nonprofit applied to the IRS for recognition of its tax-exempt status in September 2010, the IRS hadn't granted it as of October 2012. | See this committee's FEC-reported expenditures at PACTrack »
