Building a Majority

Interesting reading in the Wall Street Journal about how the House GOP leadership built the supporting apparatus that played a key role in this week's landslide House takeover:


House Republicans put themselves in position to ride that wave, casting themselves at every turn as the alternative to Obama policies, and maneuvering to reap the benefits of the tea-party anger that soon began spreading.

Many Republicans doubted the approach would work. But by early this year it had created a sense that a House takeover was possible. That in turn triggered a torrent of contributions to the party and to independent conservative groups that bought ads on behalf of Republicans, helping create a kind of self-fulfilling prophecy.
