WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wealthy industrialist Charles Koch is planning a $200,000 ad campaign in Wichita focused on political issues.
The chairman of Wichita-based Koch Industries told The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/1diCz8V ) that the four-week media campaign that begins Wednesday will laud economic freedom and warn about government overreach. It is funded by the Charles Koch Foundation.
Koch said if people like it, he might the campaign to other cities.
Koch told the Eagle that he believes his ideas on economics will help disadvantaged people. He contends government regulations, including the minimum wage, tend to hold everyone back.
The campaign promotes the idea that countries with economic freedom have the most wealth.
Koch acknowledged the move will draw fire from people who criticized him for his campaign spending last year.
