    The Koch Brothers are on a mission to make people other than older white men vote for Republicans.  Although they’ve already spent tens of millions on political races this year, they are devoting $300 million to target specific groups, including Latinos and the young. The programs they’ve backed include Concerned Veterans for America, which is currently running the “Defend Freedom Summer Tour” rock concert series.
