We have a new development in US elections. Two people, Charles and David Koch, and a small number of mostly anonymous friends (approximately 300), announced they will spend $889 million in the 2016 election aimed at presidential and congressional races. That’s huge! In 2012 the Republican National Committee combined with the party’s two congressional campaign committees raised $650 million. The Democratic Party raised a total of $839 million. The Koch brothers are outspending both parties.
