George Soros: Democrats Financial Icon

George Soros is the Democrat’s savior, when it comes to finances. Soros has given more than $25 million to Hillary Clinton and to causes he believes in and supports. Soros gained national attention during President George W. Bush’s election in 2004. Financial records estimate that Doros has earned more than $24.9 billion through financial trades.

George Soros has a relationship with Clinton stretching over 25 years. Their friendly relationship encouraged Soros to go full force, when it came to donating to the Clinton campaign and PAC’s supporting her candidacy. George Soros has donated more than $20 million to PACs across the country in his fight to ensure Democrats are able to pass legislation that is line with the Democratic platform.

One of the issues of concern to Soros is voters ability to actually vote on election day and in response Soros donated $2 million to voter mobilization group America Votes. In 2005, George Soros launched an organization that works to encourage groups to fight long-term battles instead of short-term election battles. Soros encourages his Democratic allies to focus on long-term issues such as climate change, income inequality. Soros’ organization Democracy Alliance is comprised of several mega-donors who have all agreed to contribute at least $200,000 to recommended groups. They also pay $30,000 annually in dues to fund the meetings.
