Conservative donors Koch brothers prefer Walker in 2016: NY Times

Potential Republican 2016 presidential candidate Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is seen in a television viewfinder while speaking to local activists and elected officials in DerryBillionaire brothers Charles and David Koch, the influential conservative donors, have settled on Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker as their top choice to win the 2016 Republican nomination for U.S. president, the New York Times reported on Monday. David Koch said at a fundraiser for the New York State Republican Party on Monday that he and his brother would support the party’s eventual nominee in the general election, but that it should be Walker, the paper reported, citing two people in attendance. The Koch brothers are among the best-known conservative donors, and potential Republican candidates court their favor. Those moves were intended to set Walker apart from others in the Republican field, particularly former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who has an advantage in national name recognition and fundraising over many other possible 2016 contenders.
