Donald Trump is often quoted to state that he has plenty of cash to battle his way to the Oval Office. However, another Billionaire in New York is putting his millions to halt Trump from winning. Financier George Soros has launched a presidential campaign along with donors in a $15 million campaign. The campaign series aims at calling Latinos to be part of the campaign effort. The coming presidential election is set to have the largest immigrant and Latino participation at the polls.
Through the new super PAC immigrant Voters on Bloomberg, George Soros campaign is going to fund organizations within states such as Colorado, Nevada and Florida. All these campaigns have a growing in the Asian and Latino communities. This is with the hope that these groups will sway elections to Hillary Clinton’s side in the coming elections.
Trump’s campaign has aimed at demolishing what George Soros has been working on in the recent past. He shot at the Republican presidential candidacy by proposing a hard line in the immigration policy. It led to the Hungarian-born Soros contributing large amounts of $25 million to the Democratic campaign series on theatlantic.com. People involved in the campaign effort note that this is the largest ever Democratic campaign that targets immigrants and Latinos. The primary goal is to have a minimum of 400,000 new voters in the coming general elections.
The billionaire investor has come back in the political scene after a failed $27 million spending spree to oust George W. Bush in the 2004 election on nybooks.com. He went silent from political funding but has returned as the top funder of Democratic Politics.
George Soros donated and committed more than $25 billion to Hillary Clinton and other Democratic causes and candidates. The information is based on records held by the Federal Election Commission and interviews with associates. Some of the prospects expect that George Soros will give even more as the Election Day draws near.
