United States, is run by Charles and David Koch, who hold seminars twice a year.

Democratic activists held a demonstration in downtown San Diego Sunday to protest the event, according to local news reports.

McDonnell has gone to previous Koch brother seminars, including one last summer in Vail. He traveled to San Diego from Park City, Utah, where he attended an event Saturday organized by presidential hopeful Mitt Romney.
