Vitter, being pressed by a questioner about the millions of dollars the brothers have spent on on behalf of Republicans already, said the money is going to a good cause and that the First Amendment covers political speech, too.
"I'll be honest with you: My reaction is God bless the Koch brothers," Vitter said. "They're fighting for our freedoms."
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has been the most vocal critic of the Kochs -- brothers Charles and David. He has said recently on the Senate floor that they are trying to "buy America" and that they are "un-American."
