WOW! Billionaire George Soros Offers Major Backing for Stacey Abrams in Georgia
Radical Left-wing billionaire George Soros has now officially thrown his weight behind Democrat Stacey Abrams’ second campaign for the governorship of Georgia – offering up a hefty $1 million donation.
The donation was made to a political action committee in March before a judge ruled that Abrams would have to win the Democrat primary on May 24 before being able to use the funds on her campaign.
Soros has also personally donated to Abrams’ campaign. The financier and his family gave about $60,000 directly to her campaign.
A filing with the Federal Election Commission documented the donation from Democracy PAC II, a federal committee organized to influence the 2022 elections. Soros has financed the committee with $125 million worth of funding.
The Democracy PAC was first established in 2019 and utilized more than $80 million into the 2020 elections according to a report in Politico.
Those elections included Los Angeles district attorney George Gascón who orchestrated a disastrous criminal justice reform that has inspired a historic crime wave across southern California.
Gascón is facing a recall effort from residents and massive pushback from law enforcement organizations opposed to his easing of criminal punishments.
Georgia has not been led by a Democrat governor for almost two decades. In the most recent polling, Abrams garnered support from only 45% of the state’s residents while Republican incumbent Gov. Brian Kemp garnered 50% support.
Kemp, however, needs to defeat a primary challenge from former Senator David Perdue. If Perdue won, Abrams would have only to overcome a 3% deficit according to the same poll.
Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis warned that a victory from Abrams would lead to a “cold war” between the two states.
DeSantis made the remarks during a recent press conference, where he commented on the Masters golf tournament and referenced the upcoming elections in Georgia, which lies immediately to Florida’s north.
DeSantis made a jab at Abrams by comparing her to communist Cuban dictator Raúl Castro.
“If Stacey Abrams is elected governor of Georgia, I just want to be honest, that will be a cold war between Florida and Georgia,” he said. “I can’t have Castro to my south and Abrams to my north, that would be a disaster. So I hope you guys take care of that and we’ll end up in good shape.”
Raúl Castro succeeded his brother, Fidel, as Cuba’s leader in 2011. Raúl stepped down as first secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba in 2021 and was replaced by Miguel Díaz-Canel.
Among other facets of her platform, Abrams promises to implement “high-quality, affordable child care” for children from kindergarten through fourth grade, to “cultivate school programs that proactively support LGBTQ+ kids,” and to “defend the rights of women and families” to exercise their “reproductive rights.”
Abrams has also spent the majority of the past four years claiming that she actually won the election, and that it was stolen from her.
