Soros Family Puts $250K Behind Democrat Running For Florida Governor

Left-wing billionaire George Soros and his son, Alex Soros, have now put a quarter of a million dollars behind their preferred Democratic candidate for governor of Florida.

George Soros gave another $100,000 to a political committee supporting Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum’s 2018 gubernatorial campaign on December 29, according to financial reports released by the committee. Soros previously gave $100,000 to the committee in March 2017, at the same time that Alex Soros made a $50,000 contribution to the committee. Local news outlets first reported the most recent donation.

The Soros family’s massive contributions to the committee come despite the fact that both George and Alex Soros are residents of New York. (RELATED: Leaked Docs Show How Soros Spends Big To Keep Populists Out Of Power In Europe)

George Soros is known for using his billions to influence politics at the local, state, national and international levels. One of the left-wing financier’s current projects is jumping into local district attorney’s races with massive donations, allowing him to all but handpick like-minded prosecutors around the country. (RELATED: George Soros Illegally Bankrolling Campaign To Amend Ireland’s Constitution, Government Watchdog Says)

This article has been updated to note that the donations were made to a political committee supporting Gillum’s candidacy, not his official campaign.
