Crossroads Takes a Pass on Enzi–Cheney Primary

by Katrina Trinko

Karl Rove’s Crossroads group has been public about its interest in participating in Republican Senate primaries in the 2014 races. But the group will be sitting out on the Mike Enzi–Liz Cheney match-up.

“Both Enzi and Cheney are top notch candidates who would slam dunk a general election, so this isn’t the the type of race we’d engage in,” Crossroads spokesman Jonathan Collegio e-mails. ”We’re more concerned with primaries where certain results would lead to the Democrats winning.”

Club for Growth spokesman Barney Keller said that the Club, which has frequently backed more conservative candidates in Republican primaries, would be “watching the race.”
