Karl Rove holds book signing at Hastings in Lubbock

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The man known as "the Architect" is still working to win elections for the Republican Party.

Former Presidential Advisor Karl Rove stopped in Lubbock on Thursday to attend a private luncheon for Texas State Senator Robert Duncan. Afterwards, he held a book signing at the Hastings on 50th and Indiana, where he talked about the Republican Party's chances in the November elections.

"Since Word War II, the White House party has lost an average of 4 seats in the Senate and 24 house seats in midterm elections. I think the Republicans are likely to make gains well in excess of that this fall," says Rove.

Rove served as Senior Advisor and Deputy Chief of Staff to former President George W. Bush.
