Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) is "very concerned" the GOP is going to take over the Senate in 2014. In a letter to some 800,000 perspective Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee donors, he pleaded with them to fight the Koch brothers or face a brutal defeat.
The opening of the letter reads (no emphasis needed, the Senator did an ample job):
Dear fellow Democrat,
I've got two words for you: Koch brothers.
Need I say more?
If Democrats like you and I don't do everything in our power right now, while time is on our side, come November 4, the Koch brothers will have bought total control of the Senate — and total control of Congress for their handpicked Republicans and Tea Party candidates.
You know as well as I do that would be disastrous for our country, women, minorities, seniors, children, students, the environment, and of course, you and your family.
Mere coincidence no doubt, that "you and your family" come after pretty much everyone and everything else in Reid's list.
During the last week of February Reid even had the audacity to call the American people liars. Stating from that Senate floor that all of the Obamacare horror stories are untrue. The tales are nothing more than adds, paid for by the Koch Brothers, Reid continued.
Luke Hilgemann, Chief Operating officer for Americans for Prosperity, sat down with me at CPAC to explain how AFP spent around $30 million dollars over the last several months.
One thing is certain, Reid is feeling threatened. There are eight months until the November elections, and he is trying desperately to lay blame on someone for the impending loss of his Democratic majority.
I'd be less than frank if I said that I thought we had nothing to worry about...that America is ready to hold the GOP accountable and send them packing. But honestly, I'm concerned—very concerned because I know full well what they are trying to do.
