Koch brothers pledge to spend $400 million on midterm elections

The annual winter donor conference the Koch brothers recently held was the biggest they have ever had with 550 attendees. 

The industrialist billionaire brothers, Charles and David Koch, have pledged nearly $400 million in the upcoming November midterm elections to defend and keep the Republican majorities in Congress and in state legislatures all over the nation.

The annual winter donor conference the Koch brothers recently held was the biggest they ever had, with 550 attendees.

A big focus of the network of advocacy groups tied to these two billionaires is to increase support of the Republican tax plan.

Within the next few weeks, companies will begin to implement the new law and employees will start to see changes in their paychecks.

Last year, the Koch network had contrived over $20 million to encourage and help the passing of the tax bill.

The group also has plans for prison and immigration reform and are using their money to sway decisions.

“I’m more excited about what we’re doing and about the opportunities than I’ve ever been,” Charles Koch said. “We’ve made more progress in the last five years than I had in the previous 50.”
