Becoming a parody of himself, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid took to Twitter Tuesday to bash the Koch brothers, whose privately held “Koch Industries” employs 67,000 people.

Koch Network Fires Back at Liberal Billionaires in New Ad

By Eliana Johnson

The 2014 ad war is on, with billionaires in both parties taking aim at each other in competing advertisements up in swing states.

In a new ad released Monday, the Koch network is pushing back against its Democratic critics, chief among them Harry Reid, and one of his billionaire backers.

The ad, “Steyer Infection,” juxtaposes Harry Reid’s denunciation of the Koch brothers with a narrative about Reid’s relationship with billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer and his brother Jim, who runs a ratings service for children’s products.

The Next Level Of The Anti-Koch Campaign: Treat David Koch Like A Candidate For Office

“A New Beginning” by 1980 Libertarian presidential nominee Ed Clark. David Koch ran as VP and funded the campaign. amazon.com

WASHINGTON — In 1980, David Koch ran in and funded a presidential campaign that called Social Security “The Ultimate Pyramid Scheme” and promised to abolish and replace it.

In 2014, Democrats are hoping to use that fact to tar the Republicans he and his brother Charles are bankrolling in 2014. Welcome to the next phase of the Democrats’ anti-Koch strategy this year: treat the Kochs like a candidate for office and try to make Republicans answer for the Kochs’ libertarian ideology.

Democrats have already painted the Kochs as a shadowy pair pouring millions into the political process for their own ends. In recent months Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has made almost a daily point of invoking their names, calling them “moles” Tuesday, for instance. In North Carolina, supporters of Democratic incumbent Sen. Kay Hagan — a top target for Koch largesse — say Republicans benefitting from Koch spending need to say whether or not they agree with statements like the one about Social Security in 1980.

New GOP ad hits ‘Steyer brothers’ as Democrats’ own Koch brothers

BY AARON BLAKE

Meet the GOP’s answer to Democrats’ Koch brothers attacks : the Steyer brothers.

A new web ad from the the conservative group American Commitment seeks to cast the Steyer brothers as the liberal equivalent of the Koch brothers, whom Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has repeatedly attacked for trying to “buy America.”

The ad features footage of Reid attacking the Koch brothers but suggests his criticisms more aptly describe the Steyers — Tom and Jim — whom it accuses of opposing the Keystone XL pipeline for personal gain.
