“When the primaries are over and Scott Walker gets the nomination,” Mr. Koch told the crowd, the billionaire brothers would support him, according to a spokeswoman. The remark drew laughter and applause from the audience of fellow donors and Republican activists, who had come to hear Mr. Walker speak earlier at the event, held at the Union League Club.
It seems like what we’ve been saying all along, that Walker is already an employee of Koch Industries is being verified. What sounds interesting is that they are not committing to funding him during the primary, and in fact, they have suggested that they are auditioning others.“The Koch brothers may not be settling on a Republican presidential candidate just yet. One day after The New York Times reported that the Kochs were getting behind Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a “top Koch aide” tells Politico the billionaire brothers are going to give Jeb Bush a “chance to audition for the brothers’ support.”
“The reason for the reconsideration, according to Mike Allen: “Bush is getting a second look because so many Koch supporters think he looks like a winner.”
“It’s possible the Kochs really are undecided. It’s also possible they’re doing some damage control to contain the fallout from the Times story.”
It’s a good thing that Citizen’s United proved to the SCOTUS that there is no corruption from the cash tsunami sweeping away our democracy. I was worried for a moment.
