Harry Reid’s next election is two years away, but the Koch Brothers are already busy working to get rid of him. Politico reports:

The efforts in recent months have been largely subterranean, but they are unmistakable. A handful of nonprofit groups in the vast political network helmed by allies of the conservative billionaires Charles and David Koch have established or expanded permanent ground operations in Reid’s backyard. Focused on wooing key demographics like Latinos and veterans, they’ve also paid for ads assailing the Senate Democratic leader.[su_center_ad]

Because of terrible election laws, it could all boil down to one billionaire gambling magnate.

Intensifying and complicating the competition is that allies of Reid and the Koch are assiduously courting the wild-card donor who could dictate the terms of his race, casino mogul Sheldon Adelson. He is a friend and constituent of Reid’s, but sources say Koch operatives raised more than $20 million from him in 2012, and they’re working to secure additional funding.[su_sky_ad]

    Koch’s last two tea party Nevada senate candidates were escapees from mental hospitals, Sue Lowden’s ‘chickens for HC checkups’ and Sharon Angle’s outreach campaign to Latino students: ‘some of You look a little more Asian to me.’
