The billionaire conservative financier David Koch will headline a fundraiser next week for Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, the Republican candidate for governor in Virginia, according to an invitation for the event obtained by BuzzFeed.
The reception will take place at the home of Joe Ricketts, TD Ameritrade Chairman and a heavy GOP spender in last year’s presidential campaign, best known for considering ad campaign that would plan on the image of President Barack Obama as a “metrosexual, black Abe Lincoln.” The invitation lists former governor of New York, George Pataki, as a co-host.
An email to guests from Laura Van Hove, whose consulting firm is organizing the event, frames this year’s Virginia gubernatorial election as a race that will “set the tone for the 2014 election.”
