Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid renewed his crusade against the Koch brothers Thursday, and demanded that Republicans disavow the two men who have spent tens of millions of dollars to back conservative causes.
It’s the latest installment in what’s becoming a frequent attack by Mr. Reid on David and Charles Koch, two of the wealthiest men in America. Mr. Reid led off his weekly press availability Tuesday with an attack on the two brothers, and then followed with the latest barrage of criticism.
But Mr. Reid has more than an academic interest in the matter. The ads are running in states where Democrats are in danger of losing Senate seats in November’s elections, and if Democrats lose six seats, Mr. Reid will lose his position as majority leader.
