Nevada CD 3: Bilbray Targeted by Koch Brothers, Hobby Lobby

KochtopusOld news, Erin Bilbray is running for the Nevada Congressional District 3 seat, incumbent Representative Joe Heck. New news, she’s already the target of the Congressional Leadership Fund Super PAC [Ralston] — and what a lovely group of donors they have.

During the 2011-2012 cycle 98 donors made contributions of more than $200,000. Right there up at the top is none other than our very own Sheldon Adelson, with a hefty $2.5 million donation. Las Vegas Sands kicked in another $2.5 million, Perry Homes tossed in an additional $1 million,  Schweitzer Engineering Labs contributed $300,000.  Schweitzer is in the power distribution protection, automation, and control business.

The American Action Network, founded by former Minnesota Senator Norm Coleman, and a 501 (4)c outfit, donated the interesting sum of $257,813.   Other recognizable names — Trump Organization, Reyes Holdings (major food service wholesaler), Abbott Laboratories, Chevron, Occidental Petroleum, Borden Dairies, White Castle System, and not to be missed —  Koch Industries and Hobby Lobby.  [OS]

Now the Kochtopus extends its tentacles into Nevada politics.
