Kochs Signal Support for Scott Walker

So much for the Koch brothers being libertarians, they are backing a full-fledged warhawk. This is big, including  from a Rand Paul perspective.

NYT reports:
Charles G. and David H. Koch, the influential and big-spending conservative donors, have a favorite in the race for the Republican nomination: Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin.

On Monday, at a fund-raising event in Manhattan for the New York State Republican Party, David Koch told donors that he and his brother, who oversee one of the biggest private political organizations in the country, believed that Mr. Walker was the Republican Party’s best hope for recapturing the White House.

“We will support whoever the candidate is,” said Mr. Koch, according to two people who attended the event. “But it should be Scott Walker.”

Rand's latest attempt to pander to the Koch brothers appears to have failed. Given what appears to be slim money raising by Rand, the Koch brothers moving to Walker's corner is a body blow.



  1. Rand would rather equivocate than face down his cock fighting opponents who smell his cowardice.

  2. Walker's campaign slogan: "I've got a Koch and a smile."

  3. Rands problem is that he is too clever by half. He believes that he can bamboozle political operators that have been in the political game for decades, and have seen opportunists like Rand come and go.

    Wherever Rand is getting his political advice, it is terrible. It is a process of alienating just about every interest group, and guaranteeing his unelectability.
