Kochs Tied to Job Losses by Democrats Reviving 2012 Ploy

The corporate raider, played by Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney in 2012, is once again the Democrats’ favorite campaign villain.

When the candidate has no business record, the ads attack the billionaire Koch brothers, major Republican donors in this year’s elections.
