They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. In the case of Alex Soros, son of George Soros, that’s certainly true. The younger Soros is contributing big bucks to Democrats and is starting to outpace his father.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Alexander Soros Outpacing Father in Contributions This Cycle
Alexander Soros, the son of liberal billionaire mega-donor George Soros and managing partner of Soros Fund Management, is outpacing his father in federal political contributions this election cycle, Federal Election Commission filings show.
Alexander has remained in his father’s shadows in the world of political giving despite quietly increasing his contributions by millions of dollars in recent years. Alexander has given more than $150,000 in contributions this year to federal committees and campaigns—nearly $40,000 more than his father has contributed.
The billionaire heir gave $33,900 to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) in April, the maximum amount that can be donated to a national party in a calendar year. Alexander also cut campaign checks to failed Georgia Democratic congressional candidate Jon Ossoff as well as Sens. Claire McCaskill (D., Mo.), Jon Tester (D., Mont.), Maria Cantwell (D., Wash.), and Chris Murphy (D., Conn.) around this time.
It probably won’t make much of a difference. Democrats are far more vulnerable for 2018 than Republicans.
