George Soros, the chairperson and founder of Open Society, is a reputable philanthropist who fled Hungary in 1947 after the Nazi occupation to expand the Soviet dominance. Through his unique foundation, he has been championing for an open society where the federal government is accountable, rights are respected, and with no individual owning the monopoly of truth. In addition, he is the chairperson and founder of Soros Fund Management LLC.
Apart from taking part in philanthropic activities, such as giving scholarships to black students, he has been an instrumental financier in the American political scene. In fact, he tops as the highest financier for political endeavors and politicians in the United States of America.
In a recent article posted in the New York Times, Soros and other donors are said to be behind the funding of a new political mobilization campaign. The campaign, which is expected to cost a whopping $15 million, is geared to drum up Latino as well as other immigrant individuals to vote for the Democratic candidates in the November 2016 elections.
Strategists have termed the funding as one of the leading Democratic Voter-turnout endeavor geared towards mobilizing immigrant and Latino voters only.
The larger share of the money is said to be spent via various organizations in the state of Nevada, Colorado, and Florida. These states are key to the campaign because they possess a large growth in the population of both Asian and Latino immigrants.
The Super PAC, the Immigrant Voters Win PAC, is charged with the role of coordinating the campaign or outreach, which is expected to be more partisan and political than in past endeavors. Strategists have asserted that the goals of the campaign will include boosting the number of Democratic immigrant voter turnout, and persuading politically non-committed Latinos to vote for the Democratic candidates. Consequently, the organizers are said to expect 400000 individuals as a minimum for fresh Democratic voters for the November Polls. Individually, Soros is proclaimed to contribute $5 million as facilitation funds for the Immigrant Voters Win PAC. This has turned Soros into a Liberal hero among various immigrants.
The campaign effort by Democratic financiers is said to have risen at a time when far signs of a Democratic enthusiasm split. Primarily, this is due to the existence of two chief candidates on the Democratic side, including Senator Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton.
Other Funding Campaign Efforts
The Koch brothers’ political network is also said to be funding the Libre Initiative by spending an excess of $10 million in a bid to mobilize Hispanic voters. The political network has also deployed numerous field organizers in various states.
