Still, a handful of conservative Democrats continue to take in donations from Koch's corporate PAC. All are members of the most conservative group of congressional Democrats, the Blue Dog Coalition, a group of 26 House representatives "dedicated to pursuing fiscally-responsible policies, ensuring a strong national defense, and transcending party lines to get things done for the American people."

So far this year, Democratic Reps. Jim Costa (California's 16th District), Henry Cuellar (Texas' 28th), Collin Peterson (Minnesota's 7th District), and Kurt Schrader (Oregon's 5th) have received KochPAC donations totaling $10,000, according to campaign finance records from the Federal Election Commission. These four members are the only Democrats in Congress to receive donations from KochPAC after the 2014 election cycle, according to data analyzed by the Center for Responsive Politics.

Cuellar and Peterson are long-time favorites of Koch Industries, having received donations from the corporate PAC since 2004 and 1996, respectively.
