This year’s election has been one of the most contentious and well-funded campaigns seen in recent American history. Both candidate’s ability to draw huge support from fundraising contributed to a race which was close to the very end. Though this year the Democrats found George Soros willing to re-enter into the political world after his disappointment in the previous administration’s lack of motivation in pursuing liberal policy changes.
Soros has contributed nearly $25 million dollars, almost as much as his 2004 contributions in efforts to prevent Bush taking from taking office again in 2004.
What could spur the 85-year-old billionaire to become so active in the political fundraising again?
Sources name Soros’ faith in a Clinton administration and fear over what a Trump presidency could bring as the driving factors behind his donations.
In addition to providing contributions directly to Clinton and Super PACs supporting her, the billionaire has donated to organizations involved in the fight against discriminatory voting practices and efforts to mobilize the vote in underrepresented communities.
George Soros Invests in America’s Judicial System Reform
With regards to George Soros’ donation made to democrats to support their push for the presidency it may be easy to overlook his work with local district attorney candidates across the country. An amount of $3 million seems small when compared to the $25 million contributed to the presidential campaign but the contributions made to six state’s campaigns aims to have a larger impact as a whole.
In supporting district candidates that have promised to reshape the judicial system, George Soros is providing much-needed funds to efforts to reduce racial disparity as well as pushes for treatment for instead of jail time for some offenders.
George Soros’ efforts in the smaller political arena may lead to longer lasting change than those made in the presidential election but with George Soros back in the political sphere it will interesting to see how future races play out.
