The Koch-linked Freedom Partners political action committee is spending heavily to support Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan. But independent candidate Greg Orman has his own millionaire and billionaire backers. Investment tycoons Peter Ackerman and John Burbank are supporting Orman, and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is considering it, Politico reported. Orman has also received support from top executives of some West Coast technology companies, and Jonathan Soros, son of billionaire financier George Soros, reportedly is one of the hosts of a benefit for Orman this week in New York City. – Phillip Brownlee
