There are a lot of rumors out there about Karl Rove's involvement or lack thereof in Kay's campaign. Wayne Slater lays out some of those rumors in a blog (link).
I've heard from some insiders that Rove has no involvement, and Kay's campaign manager even has confirmed that repeatedly in the press. I've also heard from other people that Rove participates in conversations quite often with Kay's team but is not really a formal advisor, which makes sense. I've also heard that Rove was involved early on but essentially withdrew in the past few months. Lots of rumors swirling.
Anyone care to speculate what is going on?
Has anyone asked Karl Rove about it point blank? I think his answer would carry more weight than the rumors.
