Made the comments while speaking to California Republicans


SACRAMENTO, March 3 (UPI) — Karl Rove, speaking to California Republicans, renewed his call for a revamped message from the GOP to catch voters in a changing America.

Though he didn't lash out at the Tea Party or its disciples by name, Rove said ideological purity, especially on social issues, can't be the only thing defining good candidates.
