The Kochs pick Walker

Looks like we have a winner in the so-call "invisible primary" among Republican presidential hopefuls, which is, as the New York Times describes it, "a period where candidates crisscross the country seeking not the support of voters but the blessing of their party’s biggest donors and fund-raisers."

The reason?
Charles G. and David H. Koch, the influential and big-spending conservative donors, have a favorite in the race for the Republican nomination: Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin.

On Monday, at a fund-raising event in Manhattan for the New York State Republican Party, David Koch told donors that he and his brother, who oversee one of the biggest private political organizations in the country, believed that Mr. Walker was the Republican Party’s best hope for recapturing the White House.

“We will support whoever the candidate is,” said Mr. Koch, according to two people who attended the event. “But it should be Scott Walker."

Now we know he'll have the money. What we don't know is if he has the talent needed to get him to the finish line in first place. No sure thing. 

So far I'd say he seems out of his depth.
