Koch Won't Take a Position on a Presidential Candidate Until Next Year (But It Won't Be Trump)

Billionaire oligarch David Koch told New York Daily News that:
Only next year will I take a position [on a Presidential candidate].
In other words, he his going to let these horses run for awhile and let the field narrow, before he lays down his money. Which proves once again the keen observations of a D.C. insider, who emailed  to say that there wouldn't be any early Koch money for a long shot like Gary Johnson.

And, it doesn't appear Koch will be laying any money down on The Donald, either. He told NYDN:
Donald Trump is exposing himself to a lot of attacks. As much as I like Donald, he's sort of asking for it. Donald's political positions over the last 10 years have been highly variable and unusual. He's a wonderful guy, but I don't think he should run for office.
NYDN caught up with Koch in NYC at "the dinner party that designer Vera Wang threw at her 740 Park Ave. home for filmmaker Pierre Thoretton for his L'Amour Fou documentary on Yves St. Laurent."
