Billionaire George Soros is truly the most influential man in politics. He has given millions to political candidates both seeking national office and state office. George Soros is one of the biggest financiers of American politics.
George Soros gave $8 million to Hillary Clinton allowing her to become the Democratic presidential nominee. He recently spent $2 million to defeat controversial Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Soros made a multi-million dollar investment in defeating Arpaio and also later filed an additional $300,000 donation.
Arpaio has also invested in campaigns all across the country including Denver and Houston. George Soros decided to invest in defeating Arpaio because of his passion in reforming the criminal justice system as well as reforming the immigration policy that is currently being enforced. Soros’ main campaign in Arizona spent $2.9 million on mailers and TV ads promoting Democrat Paul Penzone.
George Soros is a force to be reckoned with on both sides of the political aisle. Soros brings his wealth and knowledge to the campaigns he fights for and to the issues that are dear to him.
Soros’ is now working to reboot the Democratic party and to fight back against Donald Trump, the newly elected President of the United States. Democrats have begun to focus on the 2018 and 2020 elections as well as fighting back against Donald Trump’s planned agenda for his presidency. The meeting is happening despite some Democrats calling for less reliance on George Soros.
Soros has been very beneficial for the party, through his hard work and financial support, they have been able to elect strong Democratic leaders and pass important legislation. Soros was able to get Hillary from being just a primary candidate to becoming the Democratic presidential nominee.
Soros took time off from making major donations after failing to oust President Bush from the White House but came back even stronger backing Hillary Clinton. Besides funding political candidates, George Soros recently pumped $500 million into his migrant and refugee founded business program, with the hopes fellow investors will do the same. George Soros has been a strong supporter of migrants and refugees willing to invest in businesses they start up.
George Soros has been one of the few Democrats who has been strong enough to unite the party at times when key legislation or key politicians were up for re-election. Without Soros, Democrats may slowly lose traction with the relations they have built with their constituents.
