Koch network isn't backing GOP candidate in key Senate race

They founded Americans for Prosperity - a national conservative advocacy group - and are among the primary funders of the Kansas Chamber of Commerce, a pro-business organization that usually supports Republican candidates through its PAC.

The group has warned that Republican party is not doing enough to contain government spending. "Voters may matter more than the Kochs, but Trump keeps opening up these avenues for others to start criticizing him or breaking away, whether it's the anti-government and free-trade Kochs or the Republican hawks on foreign policy". "And here's the program: Ground game to support Trump's presidency and program, [and] victory on November 6".

Cramer, a Trump backer, has told allies he remains confident about his chances and will continue to support the president.

"Their network is highly overrated, I have beaten them at every turn", Trump added. Heidi Heitkamp. She's considered among the most vulnerable Senate Democrats in the nation.

The Kochs have not ruled out similar moves in top-tier Senate races in Indiana, Missouri, Montana, and West Virginia, although they are actively working to help elect Republican Senate candidates in Florida, Tennessee and Wisconsin.

Officials said the meeting this weekend is the largest summer gathering of like-minded donors, with 135 first-time participants. The Koch network campaigned heavily for passage of tax cuts that Trump signed into law a year ago and praised his judicial picks.

Trump has previously clashed with the donors, suggesting in the early days of his presidential campaign that those courting the two were "puppets".

So far, 10 GOP House lawmakers and two senators have been targeted by the Koch network's political arm due to their support for the $1.3 trillion spending package passed by Congress in March or for voting against spending clawbacks.

The Trump White House budget office now predicts that next year's federal deficit will exceed one trillion dollars, while reaching a combined eight trillion dollars over the next 10 years.

What we have, then, are these evil right-wing puppet masters (as our liberal friends see them) basically saying that Kevin Cramer is too moderate for them.

But some of Trump's most controversial actions break sharply with the priorities of the libertarian-leaning network, which opposes Trump's tariffs on foreign goods and his hard line on immigration, including the now-suspended zero tolerance policy that saw hundreds of migrant families separated at the border. "They want to protect their companies outside the US from being taxed, I'm for America First & the American Worker - a puppet for no one". "I think this network supports people who truly respect those principles".
