    Art Pope, Koch Brothers Ally, Picked To Run North Carolina Budget

    Pope, the millionaire discount store chain owner, has spent years building a massive conservative infrastructure in the state in the mold of the national network funded by the billionaire Koch brothers. He has built think tanks, funded scholarship programs for conservatives, founded the North Carolina chapter of Americans for Prosperity and, in the past four years, pumped more than $3 million into political campaigns that have successfully flipped the state's government into full control of the most conservative elements of the state Republican Party.

    Now, in his new position he will be able to tap the policy ideas constructed by think tanks that he has funded, including the John Locke Foundation and the Civitas Institute, and put them into action.

    THE KOCH TENTACLES RUN DEEP INTO THE GOP
