Far-Left Billionaire George Soros Gives $1 Million to Democrat Beto O’Rourke’s Gubernatorial Campaign


    The Texas Ethics Commission’s website shows that Soros’s contribution to the Beto for Texas PAC was given on June 23. Soros is a major donor to Democrat campaigns, having given millions to the top pro-Clinton Super PAC during Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. He also gave to PACs that supported radical leftist district attorneys’ campaigns in recent years, such as Alvin Bragg in New York County, New York, George Gascón in Los Angeles County, California, and Kim Foxx in Cook County, Illinois.

    From late February to the end of June, O’Rourke raised a record of $27.6 million, while his opponent, Gov Greg Abbott (R-TX), was not far behind, taking in $24.9 million, the Texas Tribune reported. O’Rourke has raised $40.9 million since November 2021, but only 60 percent of the total has come from contributors in Texas, compared to Abbott’s $37 million, 83 percent of which has come from in-state donors. Abbott has 45.7 million in cash, leading his opponent by a nearly 2-1 margin, as O’Rourke has 23.9 million.

    O’Rourke launched a presidential bid in 2020 and didn’t secure a single delegate following a 2018 bid for U.S. Senate in Texas, losing to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). Now, he looks to beat Abbott, who is campaigning for his third term as governor. Recent polling of the Lone Start State consistently shows Abbott leading the race. A recent poll from University of Texas had Abbott ahead of O’Rourke by six percentage points at 45 percent and 39 percent, respectively, among Texas voters. In a CBS/YouGov poll released on June 30, O’Rourke garnered 41 percent of the response among adult residents in Texas, which was eight points behind Abbott with 49 percent.

    Following the school shooting at Robb Elementary School, O’Roruke showed up at an Abbot press conference in what Uvalde Mayor Don Mcloughlin called an effort to score cheap political points.

    O’Rourke told the governor, “You’re doing nothing.” 

    “He needs to get his ass out of here,” McLoughlin declared. “Sir, you’re out of line! Sir, you’re out of line! Please leave this auditorium. I can’t believe … you’re a sick son of a bitch,” the mayor continued, “that would come to an event like this to make political issues.”
