WASHINGTON — A super PAC launched this year by the conservative political network aligned with billionaires Charles Koch and David Koch has raised more than $15 million to influence congressional races, the group's first public filings show.

Robert Mercer, a billionaire hedge-fund manager, contributed the most — writing a $2.5 million check in September, according to the report that Freedom Partners Action Fund filed Tuesday with the Federal Election Commission. Each of the Koch brothers donated $2 million to the new super PAC.
