Washington (CNN) – As Hillary Clinton made waves for her remarks about Russian incursions into Ukraine, a Republican super PAC sought to tie the former secretary of state to the Obama administration's handling of the unfolding crisis.
A 30-second web video by America Rising PAC stitches together public statements by then-Secretary of State Clinton and President Barack Obama on their attempted reset of U.S. relations with Russia. The video includes a 2009 meeting when Clinton famously presented Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov with a red "reset" button to signify the start of closer ties between the two superpowers.
Washington (CNN) – Some of the top members of Mitt Romney's two presidential campaigns are teaming up in the nation's capital next week for a reception and dinner designed to raise money for a new pro-GOP opposition research shop.
According to an invitation obtained by CNN, the July 23 event is being put together by Matt Rhodes, the Romney 2012 campaign manager who earlier this year was one of the founders of the America Rising PAC. The group's mission is to track and gather opposition research on leading Democrats in the 2014 and 2016 cycles. It recently was behind the startup of the Stop Hillary PAC, which was formed to attack Hillary Clinton, should she run for president in 2016.
