There’s not much left to say about US politics these days.. no signs of improvement.. big money tightening the grip on the process, and more openly so.
Here’s Charles Koch laying out the plans for directing the primaries, to secure the right candidate to promote for the general. With something like $890 million from now until Nov 2016.
WICHITA, Kan. — Charles Koch said he is considering throwing his political might into the Republican presidential primary for the first time and is likely to provide financial help to several contenders before settling on a single candidate.
Koch, his brother David and their team have identified five candidates who have the right message and “a good chance of getting elected,” he told USA TODAY in an exclusive interview at Koch Industries’ headquarters. They are Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, former Florida governor Jeb Bush and Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Marco Rubio of Florida.
“Those are the ones we have talked to the most and who seem to be the possible leaders,” he said.
