January 26, 2015 4:12 p.m.

The political organization backed by the Koch brothers plans to spend almost a billion dollars in the 2016 campaign cycle.

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.
