The Country Club wing of the Republican Party is fed up with the antics of Tea Party. Tea Party candidates are winning primaries, knocking off incumbents, and then going on to lose disastrously in the general election to Democrats. This has cost the GOP dearly, and has been a big help for Democrats in keeping control of the Senate and even increasing the Democrats' margin against the odds.

Karl Rove being in the business of channeling the flow of money to buy influence and slime opponents has stepped forward to undermine the Tea Party's out-sized leverage within the Republican Party and over elected officials.

Top Donors to Republicans Seek More Say in Senate Races

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa -- The biggest donors in the Republican Party are financing a new group to recruit seasoned candidates and protect Senate incumbents from challenges by far-right conservatives and Tea Party enthusiasts who Republican leaders worry could complicate the party's efforts to win control of the Senate.

The group, the Conservative Victory Project, is intended to counter other organizations that have helped defeat establishment Republican candidates over the last two election cycles. It is the most robust attempt yet by Republicans to impose a new sense of discipline on the party, particularly in primary races.

The Conservative Victory Project will be a super PAC operating independently of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. It will disclose the names of donors and raise money separately from American Crossroads, officials said, because some donors were uncomfortable about aggressively weighing in on Republican-vs.-Republican fights.
The Tea Party faction is pushing back HARD too.
