(CNS News) David Bossie, president of the conservative group Citizens United, said that if Republicans are to reverse their electoral fortunes and score much-needed political victories, establishment consultants such as Karl Rove need to “get out of the way.”

“If the Republican establishment leadership can just get out of the way of the conservative movement and of the Tea Party and give people something to look forward to – a positive image of America, a positive vision for the future of America economically, from a foreign policy, and from a social policy standpoint – we can win elections in this off-year, in 2014,” Bossie told CNSNews.com in an interview Thursday.
