Koch Brothers Won't Go to Republican National Convention

Reports Politico:

Add the Koch brothers' massive political network to the growing list of those who say they will not be attending the Republican National Convention in Cleveland this July.

“Why go?” Charles Koch told ABC News in an article published Monday, referring to the brothers' umbrella political organization, Freedom Partners. “We're not interested in politics. We’re interested in moving us towards a culture and policies that will enable people to improve their lives.”

Koch also said that House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) is "better on the issues" than the remaining Republican candidates but that supporting him as a "white knight" nominee would do more harm than help their cause.

“I don’t see how he could win,” Koch said. “If he did, I mean, that would create the impression this whole thing is rigged, which — that's the opposite of the direction we want to go.”
