Pence to be Featured Guest at Koch Brothers' Donor Network Event

The Guardian is reporting that Donald Trump's running mate Mike Pence is slated to be a featured guest at the Koch donor network’s semiannual policy and fundraising event, which is scheduled to run from 30 July to 1 August at a  Colorado resort.

The paper says, Pence’s name was prominent on the invitation list that was sent to a few hundred major supporters of the network, along with  House speaker, Paul Ryan, and governors Greg Abbott of Texas and Doug Ducey of Arizona,

Although there is np indication that the anti-Rothbard  brothers will back Trump, The Guardian reports:
 [S]ome big Koch donors are backing Trump and have committed to help Super Pacs, which unlike campaign committees can accept unlimited donations. Minnesota broadcasting billionaire Stan Hubbard has donated $100,000 to the pro-Trump Great America Pac, a Super Pac that boasts veteran GOP operative Ed Rollins as a top strategist.
Further, hedge fund billionaire Robert Mercer, who gave more than $10m to a Super Pac that was backing Ted Cruz, has indicated he intends to back a new pro-Trump Super Pac dubbed Make America Number One, which will solicit big checks from donors who aren’t ready to back Trump but detest Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.
