BOSTON A group backed by the conservative Koch brothers plans to spend more than $125 million on the November elections.
The investment marks a significant escalation for the Koch brothers' main campaign arm. Americans For Prosperity plans to increase television advertising across the country, improve voter data collection and strengthen its 31-state ground operation.
A senior official with direct knowledge of the plans confirms the election blueprint. It's outlined in a memo to Republican donors this spring. The official confirms the memo's authenticity but isn't authorized to discuss it publicly.

How much is Steyer and Soros putting up this year?
We need a Putsch.
I am absolutely flummoxed Conservatives support the Koch Brothers. yeah, I like that the drag Harry and crew through the poop, but they are NOT in this for any Patriotic cause or reason. They are going to buy America and it is not going to be what we/you want.
“The enemy of my enemy is my friend” is ludicrous and dangerous. If the Kochs are successful at stopping Liberalism (I am more confident of winning the Lotto) then rest assured we are next.
Well, thanks Senator Reid. I didn't know you were a FReeper.
This is simply logic. Democrat logic in fact, but that's the best kind of logic.
Right, they are going to buy America one roll of toilet paper, one roll of paper towels and a few 2x4’s at a time.
Wow. No more Diet Koch for these guys. This is the real thing. Call those big time Lib supporters and raise them $25 million.
I assume you are being sarcastic. The Koch brothers are being attacked in a combination of class warfare and crony capitalism (Greenies want their money). It is proper for them to defend themselves. What they should really do it turn off Dirty Harry’s energy, make him freeze in the dark the way he wants the rest of us to do.
Nobody blows as much money as they have on political causes without being motivated by ideology.
The monetary return on their investment is next to nothing.
They're trying to fight leftism and putting up big money to do it. How much are you doing?
Thank you. Now I don’t have to be the one to say it.
OMG...Are these the same Koch Brothers who employ 70,ooo people worldwide? 50k here in the states alone? Those pesky capitalists whose industries they serve are being inundated by Gov’t regulations that makes it harder to employ all those people?
How unpatriotic of them to continue employing all these families to make their lives better. They are so evil and these would be the kind of men who would stop at nothing to destroy everything....(please note this is sarcasm and please note how stupid you sound)
I’m trying to think of the words to describe what this will do to Dingy Harry. He’s already deranged, so I can’t use that one.
“They are going to buy America “
They why did David Koch donate 250 million to various charities.
NOT A PROBLEM.
All the Democrats have to do is RUN ON THEIR RECORD.
Come to think of it...HUGE PROBLEM. I can see why they got their backs up when they found out that there will now be a well-financed counter to Soros, the Media, and the Unions.
