Charles and David Koch “have quietly assembled, piece by piece, a privatized political and policy advocacy operation like no other in American history that today includes hundreds of donors and employs 1,200 full-time, year-round staffers in 107 offices nationwide,” Politico reported. “That’s about 3 1/2 times as many employees as the Republican National Committee and its congressional campaign arms had on their main payrolls (in November).... And the staggering sum the network plans to spend in the 2016 election run-up – $889 million – is more than double what the RNC spent in the previous presidential cycle.” – Phillip Brownlee
