George Soros: Democrats mega donor working to get out the vote

Democratic mega-donor George Soros has been spending millions to mobilize Florida’s Puerto Rican voters, a voting bloc strongly fought over in one of the country’s biggest battleground states. George Soros gave $200,000 to a Florida political committee, United for Progress, which educates Floridians about issues that are important to the Puerto Rican community around the state. The campaign will be heavily revolved around mailers targeting certain races with a lot of Puerto Rican voters who lean Democrat.

George Soros is a Hungarian-born financial expert who previously donated $200,000 targeting the Puerto Rican community with the to-get-out-the-vote campaigns. The funds were sent to United for Progress.

United for Progress is working inside House District 43, which is being overseen by Democrat John Cortes, while the District is 55 percent Hispanic, most being Puerto Rican. The District, which is based in Osceola County, has recently seen an influx of Puerto Ricans due to the continued financial crisis on the island.

The Puerto Rican population in Florida skyrocketed 110% since 2000, giving the Puerto Rican community political clout. These new Puerto Rican residents make up nearly one-third of all eligible Hispanic voters, who represent about 15 percent of all Florida voters this election cycle. Puerto Rican voters are the second-largest group of Hispanic voters in Florida, and are expected to become the largest by 2020.

George Soros has spent $1.3 million successfully ousting sitting State Attorney Jeff Ashton, and is also fighting hard against Hillsborough State Attorney Mark Ober. As the number of Puerto Ricans flock to Florida, it has become key for Democrats to win over that new voting bloc and bringing them to the polls. The issues of concern to the Puerto Ricans include: federal funding for Zika and the government’s debt crisis. Fellow Puerto Ricans have seen an increase over the past few weeks of an increased number of voters from the Hispanic and Puerto Rican community, turning out to vote.

George Soros’ funding strategy continues to help the Democrats bring more voters to the polls, ensuring that their policies are approved and that the right candidates are elected by the Hispanic and Puerto Rican community. Democratic leaders continue to fight for the Hispanic community including the Puerto Ricans bringing to light the issues that matter to them, when it comes to making policy decisions in their districts and cities.
