Meet The Billionaire Koch Brothers’ Puppet: Congressman Joe Heck
David and Charles Koch, billionaire oil barons from Kansas, are spending millions from their fortune to elect Congressman Joe Heck to the U.S. Senate. And what do the Kochs’ receive from Heck in return for their millions? A politician who has “consistently voted” with their radical agenda 90 percent of the time last year alone. It’s no wonder the Koch network has multiple shadow organizations working to buy the Senate seat – the Kochs know Heck will protect their interests and do their bidding.
The Koch-Funded Groups Buying Nevada’s Senate Seat
The Koch-funded Freedom Partners Action Fund has spent more than $6 million on attack ads smearing Catherine Cortez Masto and lying about her record.
The Koch-funded Americans for Prosperity has funneled almost two hundred thousand dollars into field operations.
The Koch-funded Libre Initiative is the “new frontier” of the Koch network, pouring over a hundred thousand dollars to try to get Latinos to vote against their own best interests.
What they’re saying about Heck’s Koch Addiction
“The motivation behind their longtime support for Heck is obvious. ‘Heck is one of their people,’ Michael Green, a politics expert and associate professor of history at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, remarked.”

“Koch group’s Nevada ground game focused on race for Reid seat: ‘Right now we really are pretty laser-beamed on the Senate effort,’ Tim Phillips, president of Americans For Prosperity, said in an interview.”
– Las Vegas Review Journal, 9/4/2016
“For their part, leaders of the Koch network, which has at least four groups working to defeat Ms. Cortez Masto, do not disguise the fact that they would sorely like to knock off Mr. Reid’s chosen successor to exact a bit of revenge and to help Republicans hold the Senate.”
