Which begs the question: Who’s running this conservative (and low-budget) version of Ready for Hillary? That’s the rub: Nobody seems to know.
It has a professional website (not paid for by Mitt Romney, as it makes very clear) and growing following. The number of signatures stood in the mid-10,000’s when TPM first visited last month; now it’s approaching 30,000.
