David Koch vs. Bill deBlasio in NYC, Give Me a Break

The city’s unions are all hopped up about  billionaire David Koch tossing pocket change at the opponent of interventionist NYC mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio.

A number of the city's most powerful private and public labor organizations have come together to form New York Progress, a super P.A.C. that has raised more than $1 million so far and hopes to clear at least $2 million in the coming weeks, according to Josh Gold, political director for the Hotel & Motel Trades Council,  reports Capital New York

The intent is to counterbalance fund-raising effort for Joe Lhota spearheaded by billionaire David Koch,.

“If the Koch Brothers start attacking Bill then we are going to defend him,” said  Gold. ,

Koch and associates have raised $366,100 and spent $259,150 through their New York Progress and Protection P.A.C. to help Lhota in the general election, even as he trails by 50 points in recent polls.

Note to Democrats, if David isn't throwing at a minimum $10 million into a race, he isn't serious. He has probably spent more on dinners with Rand Paul, than what he has spent on this race.
