Reid To Donors: Koch Brothers Could End The Democratic Majority

AP

Senate Democratic leaders really want to run against the Koch brothers in the 2014 mid-term elections.

A recent fundraising letter penned by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), seeking donations for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, provides a glimpse into how the party will vilify the billionaire oil tycoons in their battle to maintain control of the Senate.

The letter below went out to 800,000 prospective donors in the first week of March, a Democratic source said. A handwritten note in red ink at the top reads, “Without your support, [the Koch brothers will] succeed in kicking Democrats out of the Senate majority this fall.”
