NO ONE KNOWS WHO THE KOCH BROTHERS ARE:

Left struggled to move voters with Koch attacks and other big-money messages (Matea Gold November 9, 2014, Washington Post)

One clear lesson emerged from last week's midterms: running against big money in politics is hard to do.

Democrats and their allies made the topic one of their central lines of attack this year, featuring the billionaire industrialists Charles and David Koch in nearly 100 different political spots that ran in states from Alaska to Florida. In most cases, Democrats lost.

The difficulty they encountered in transforming the public's disgust with rich donors into political action speaks to how difficult it is move voters who view both parties as captives of wealthy patrons.

Any voter with even a mild clue who these guys are isn't up for grabs in your ad campaign.
