Radical billionaire George Soros has been pumping millions of dollars into Texas Democrats as part of an effort to shift the power dynamic in the state away from Republicans.
Soros’ extensive spending in Texas was revealed in state campaign finance records.
The leftist megadonor has contributed over $3 million to at least five left-wing groups in the Lone Star State over the last year.
The Hungarian-born financier is planning to beef up infrastructure and help Democrats make gains in the overwhelmingly Republican stronghold.
Soros is single-handedly propelling one of the progressive groups working to accomplish those goals.
In August, it was revealed that the Texas Majority PAC, a mysterious under-the-radar group positioning itself to turn the state blue, had received hundreds of thousands of dollars from Soros’ Democracy PAC II.
Texas Majority PAC had not been publicly launched, nor were there any news reports about it at the time.
However, it has since come out of the shadows and into the spotlight.
A recent report by The Texas Tribune said former staffers from Democrat Beto O’Rourke’s failed gubernatorial campaign operate the group.
The group raised nearly $2.25 million last year.
“We need millions of more dollars and hundreds of more full-time staff to do this,” the group’s executive director, Katherine Fischer, told The Texas Tribune last week regarding its fundraising.
“Texas Majority PAC works with partners across the state to create the conditions that will make flipping the state possible.”
Recently released Texas campaign finance records show Soros has provided all its donations to date.
His Democracy PAC II has given the group $850,000 in contributions.
Meanwhile, he has personally provided $1.4 million.
They account for the PAC’s entire $2.25 million in donations.
Mayra Flores, a former Republican congresswoman and the first Mexican-born woman to serve in the House of Representatives, believes Soros is pouring money into the Texas Majority PAC to boost Democrat turnout in 2024.
According to Flores, Soros doesn’t want Republican Hispanic leaders like her to win over other Hispanics who have traditionally voted blue.
“They’re seeing that Hispanics are shifting towards the Republican Party because they’re realizing that we are the party of prosperity, that we want to build a strong economy, that we want to secure the border, that we want to prioritize the people of this country and not prioritize people from outside this country,” Flores recently said.
“And I believe that it’s our policies that are winning people over, and the struggle is real.
“George Soros and the Democratic Party are seeing people like myself that resonate with the Hispanic community,” she added.
“They resonate with me.
“I resonate with them.
“We have similar stories.
“I’m bilingual. I speak Spanish and English.
“We have similar stories, and we share that bond.”
The bulk of Soros’ Texas cash has gone to the Texas Majority PA.
However, he has also given hundreds of thousands of dollars to other groups working to elect Democrats statewide.
Campaign finance records show Soros has donated at least $300,000 in the second half of 2023 to CTX Votes, which doesn’t appear to have an online footprint.
In December, Soros gave $250,000 to the Texas Organizing Project, which caught flak last month for previously bailing out an individual charged with killing several people in Texas, including his parents.
Additionally, he gave $200,000 to the Dallas County Democratic PAC and $100,000 to a group called First Tuesday, which also does not appear to have an online presence, in the second part of 2023.
