One of the largest conservative groups in the country isn't promoting the presidential candidacy of Donald Trump as its activists go door to door interacting with voters.

Americans for Prosperity — the best-known group financed by conservative billionaires Charles and David Koch (kohk) — has more than 1,200 employees spread across the country.

Four years ago, that group spent heavily in an effort to prevent President Barack Obama's second term.

This time they're spending about $250 million on policy and politics in the two years leading to Election Day. But they're focusing on saving the Republican-led Senate.

The brothers and many of their wealthy donor friends who fund the political and policy groups known as "the Koch network" have no interest in backing Trump.
