The Courage Campaign, one of the largest progressive organizations in California, is out with a new ad this morning tying the Koch Brothers to Prop 32 and the effort to strip labor of it's voice in politics .

The ad will air in the LA market next week.

Rick Jacobs, founder and chair of the Courage Campaign, released the following statement on the ad:

"First it was Wisconsin. Then it was Ohio. Now the Koch Brothers, Karl Rove and the their out-of-state money and ultra-right-wing agenda have their eyes on an even bigger prize: California. The Koch Brothers are trying to beat back democracy, tear down the middle class and destroy unions all in favor of advancing an agenda meant to put profits over people. California cannot be sold to the highest bidder."
