Liberal billionaire George Soros donated his second $250,000 contribution to Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum’s Forward Florida political action committee (PAC) in late June for his gubernatorial campaign.
Soros, who has given $700,000 to the PAC since the beginning of the campaign cycle, is one of two prominent billionaires financially backing the Democrat Gillum’s campaign. Soros’ son, Alex Soros, has also given $50,000 to Gillum’s PAC, according to Florida Politics.
The article goes on to state the following:
California billionaire and political activist Tom Steyer was the other billionaire helping fund Gillum’s campaign. He endorsed Gillum, who has positioned himself as the anti-establishment progressive in the race, last Thursday and is expected to contribute $500,000 to Forward Florida as part of his endorsement.
While Gillum’s personal fundraising has been largely pedestrian compared to some of his opponents, he was the beneficiary of a Hollywood fundraiser back in March with big names like actress Alyssa Milano and actor Alec Baldwin in attendance.
Gillum has positioned himself as a progressive, but both of his Republican and Democratic opponents have taken notice of the financial influence from Soros and Steyer on his campaign’s finances.
