Charles and David Koch Will Not Launch Donald Trump Intervention To Stop GOP Nomination
Charles and David Koch will not use their $400 million political arsenal against Republican front-runner Donald Trump during the primary process, according to a report from Reuters:
“We have no plans to get involved in the primary,” said James Davis, spokesman for Freedom Partners, the Koch brothers’ political umbrella group. He would not elaborate on what the billionaire industrialists’ strategy would be for the Nov. 8 general election to succeed Democratic President Barack Obama.
The Kock brothers are the most powerful conservative mega donors in the United States.
The brothers are said to be “smarting from the millions they pumped” into the 2012 Republican presidential bids of Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney, only to see both candidacies fail.
