David Koch, the billionaire businessman and philanthropist, has confirmed that he will be a New York delegate at the upcoming GOP convention in Tampa.

“I am deeply honored and humbled to be chosen as one of 95 delegates representing the great State of New York at the 2012 Republican National Convention,” the executive vice president of Koch Industries, Inc. told Newsmax through a company spokeswoman.

“As Americans, we all have a role to play in the democratic process. From learning about the issues to participating in campaigns and voting, this is an opportunity — and a right — to help chart the course for our nation,” Koch said.

Recently, Koch revealed that he had been the target of 100 credible death threats last year alone because of his opposition to unions in the United States.

The influential conservative, who founded and funds the tea party-friendly group Americans for Prosperity, is one of 34 at-large delegates from The Empire State along with former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former Gov. George Pataki, and Georgette Mosbacher, a major GOP fundraiser and former party finance chair, according to The Wall Street Journal.
