FILE - This June 17, 2014, file photo shows President Barack Obama speaking at the Democratic National Committee's (DNC) annual Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) fundraiser gala in Gotham Hall, in New York.

(AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais, File) The Koch brothers-backed super PAC is adding to its TV spending over the final two weeks leading up to the midterm elections, dropping an additional $6.5 million into six competitive U.S. Senate races. The ads will link Democratic candidates to President Obama.
