Charles and David Koch have spent hundreds of millions of dollars attempting to mold Washington into a perfect, free-market playground.

But when a prospective presidential nominee does come from their circle of influence, they throw a fit.
Shortly before Super Tuesday, Marc Short resigned his position as the head of the Koch’s political empire, Freedom Partners, to join the campaign of Marco Rubio.
The move was a clear signal to the Establishment (that the brothers are not necessarily part of) that they’re in to stop Trump.
According to reports from Trump confidant Roger Stone, Charles and David Koch also quickly put together a coalition of donors what were willing to throw in $100 million to block Trump from winning the nomination.
