Freedom Partners Action Fund, a super PAC controlled by the Koch brothers' political operation, plans to spend $4 million on ads targeting Democrats in the Pennsylvania, Ohio and Nevada Senate races this week.   

The spending was debuted at Charles and David Koch's donor retreat over the weekend. The Koch brothers have refused to spend on behalf of Donald Trump, choosing instead to pour their resources into Senate contests.

A super PAC aligned with the conservative Koch brothers has spent millions on advertising in tight Senate races in Nevada and Ohio, and elsewhere after the billionaire industrialists announced they would not bankroll Donald Trump's presidential campaign.  

The Koch brothers and the conservative donor network they oversee had planned to funnel hundreds of millions of dollars to politics and policy in 2015 and 2016, putting them on par with both the Democratic and Republican parties and positioning the group to wield unparalleled influence on conservative campaigns. The group has so far spent $19.3 million in a handful of states, according to NBC news.
