According to the California Secretary of State’s office, billionaire leftist financier George Soros has given another $500,000 to Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom’s campaign to stop the California recall, bringing his total contribution to Newsom to $1 million.
Soros reportedly made three separate, large contributions: a $250,000 donation in June to a committee called “Stop the Republican Recall of Gavin Newsom”; another $250,000 donation in early August; and the most recent donation of $500,000 just before the end of August.
Major Democratic donors like Soros are pouring cash into the battle to keep Newsom in office, as he faces an increasingly strong challenge from conservative talk radio host Larry Elder, who leads polls to replace him. Newsom’s top donor remains Netflix co-CEO Reed Hastings.
Soros’ deep pockets have steered countless elections and judicial appointments radically leftward in his attempt to almost single-handedly reorient the Western world’s political landscape to align with his socialist, globalist vision.
