       Karl Rove, a longtime Republican political strategist, is often credited with helping in the successful presidential campaigns of 2000 and 2004. He also is credited with helping guide former President George W. Bush to a win in the 1994 Texas gubernatorial election. Since leaving the White House in 2007, Rove has worked as a commentator and contributor for several media outlets, including Fox News and the Wall Street Journal. He is the author of “Courage and Consequence”.
