David Koch Hosts NYC Fundraiser Tonight To Thank Kelly Ayotte For Voting With The Koch Brothers Nearly 90% Of The Time
 
Event Also Features Ayotte Donor John Bolton, Who Serves On Advisory Group Of PAC Responsible For Disgusting Ads In N.H. Exploiting The Image Of James Foley For Political Gain
 
Concord, N.H. – Since going to Washington, Kelly Ayotte has voted with the Koch Brothers nearly 90% of the time. So it comes as no surprise that David Koch is hosting a $10,000- a-plate fundraiser at the Metropolitan Club in New York tonight to support Ayotte, one of his extremely reliable votes in the Senate.
 
“Instead of looking out for the interests of New Hampshire’s families and small businesses, Kelly Ayotte has voted with the Koch Brothers nearly 90% of the time since she went to Washington,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley. “From voting to cut Pell Grants for our students to voting to turn Medicare into a voucher system for our seniors, all while protecting special tax breaks for Big Oil, it’s clear that Ayotte puts the Koch Brothers’ interests before New Hampshire’s.”
 
The fundraiser will also feature another Ayotte donor, John Bolton, whose right-wing fringe group ran ads exploiting the image of New Hampshire native James Foley during the last election.
 
“It’s no surprise that the Koch Brothers are continuing to go to bat for Ayotte because they know that she will always support their agenda in the Senate,” added Buckley.
 
BACKGROUND
 
Kelly Ayotte Votes With The Koch Brothers Nearly 90% Of The Time
The Koch Brothers’ main political arm, Americans for Prosperity, gives Ayotte an 88% lifetime score (having voted with the Koch Brothers on 55 out of 62 scored votes since going to Washington). And American’s for Prosperity has already gone to bat to protect Ayotte by launching a million dollar attack ad in August because they know that she will continue to support the Koch Brothers’ agenda in the Senate.
