WASHINGTON — Billionaire Charles Koch may not be jumping into the presidential race, but last month he contributed $3 million to a super PAC working to keep the Senate in Republican hands.

His donation to Freedom Partners Action Fund helped the super PAC collect $8.1 million in May, according to a draft of the filing the group will submit to the Federal Election Commission in the coming days. The super PAC is a political arm of Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce, a trade group at the center of Koch's large policy network.

Other large donors to Freedom Partners in May included Wisconsin roofing magnate Diane Hendricks and Mountaire Corporation, the poultry company owned by Arkansas businessman Ronald Cameron. Each donated $2 million.
