News of the fundraising goal was revealed by donors at a yearly winter retreat hosted by Freedom Partners, a tax-exempt group that acts as the center of the Koch brothers-backed political operation, according to The Washington Post.
The $889 million is double what the 17 groups in the Koch network spent in 2012.
