President Trump’s former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon is warning Republican candidates not to take money from the conservative Koch network – or face consequences.
“You take Koch money, it’s going to be toxic,” Bannon told CNBC in an interview. “We are going to let people know that if you take Koch money there’s a punishment.”
“If you take money from people who are against the president and are looking to put a knife in the back of the president, you are going to pay.”
Bannon’s comments came days amid signs of tensions between the Koch network and President Trump.
The Koch network has said it would freeze out Republicans who break with its fiscally conservative policy priorities, at least for now, and that it plans to back only a handful of candidates in Senate races in Florida, Wisconsin, Tennessee and Missouri.
