A new political action committee (PAC) has emerged in Texas that is being funded by leftist billionaire George Soros.
Texas Majority PAC is described by Fox News as “a mysterious Texas entity working to build up progressive infrastructure.”
The Soros-backed Democracy PAC funneled $750,000 to the Texas Majority PAC in the first six months of this year, Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings show.
However, it appears that Soros is the organization’s fiscal lifeline.
A separate filing shows the group raised a total of $752,040 overall during those months.
The website mobilize.us promoted a meeting between the new PAC and Dallas-area Democrats.
“Texas Majority PAC is a project started in 2023 focused on growing our Democratic majority and winning statewide elections,” the website says.
“Over the past few months, our team has been hard at work hosting listening sessions and researching what it’s going to take to turn Texas Blue.”
The group’s website says that “Texas Majority PAC is a project dedicated to electing a Democrat to statewide office in Texas.
“We are conducting research to understand what it will take to win the state.”
The group was only recently incorporated in December, according to Fox News.
Job postings call the group “a research and development institution dedicated to flipping Texas blue by building year-round Democratic infrastructure in the key regions of Texas.”
“TMP invests in partners running voter engagement and turnout programs in an effort to bring their work to the scale required to win statewide office in Texas,” the posting state, according to Fox.
In the first six months of this year, the PAC spent $600,000 so far.
Republican Gov. Greg Abbott accused Soros of funding the group as part of an effort to “buy Texas.”
“We aren’t for sale!” the governor asserted.
George Soros thinks he can buy Texas.

In November, The Texas Tribune noted the extent to which turning Texas blue is an uphill battle as the 2022 election results came in.
“Voters returned GOP incumbents to their jobs at the top of the ticket and handed the state’s dominant party its 14th consecutive sweep of statewide offices,” the Tribune reported.
“Republicans also seemed poised to add slightly to their majorities in the Texas Legislature, where they’ve controlled both chambers for 20 years, and held large leads in all statewide judicial races.”
Last year, Soros invested $1 million in Democrat Beto O’Routke’s unsuccessful attempt to defeat Abbott, according to The Hill.
