Koch brothers-backed a vulnerable Democrat Senator Heidi Heitkamp in 2018.
The group even launched an ad campaign this summer for a vulnerable Democratic senator from North Dakota going into the midterm elections in a state that voted for Donald Trump in 2016 – Sen. Heidi Heitkamp. The ad thanks her for her leadership role in working on the Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act.
As for direct cash donations from Koch Industries to candidates, the FEC records on OpenSecrets.org show the Kochs are only directly financially supporting one Democrat’s campaign for the 2018 midterms, down from the 13 Democrats who directly received Koch money for their campaigns in 2008. It’s a name that frequently appears on the pages of Koch Industries donations throughout the years: Collin Peterson (D-MN).
Heitkamp lost to Kevin Kramer in 2018.
