A dark money nonprofit is teaming up with a project launched earlier this year financed by political billionaire activists Tom Steyer and George Soros in a bid to boost Democratic causes and candidates in at least 11 states, according to campaign finance disclosure documents.
The State Engagement Fund, a 501(c)(4) based in Washington, D.C., does not have to disclose its donors. From late August through September, State Engagement Fund made four donations worth $2.1 million to State Victory Action.
State Victory Action, meanwhile, is a 527 organization formed this year. Previous disclosures showed nearly all of that group’s $11 million in seed funding had come from billionaire political activists Tom Steyer and George Soros.
The Washington Free Beacon reported earlier this month that State Victory Action was rolling out a strategy focused on state-level politics and candidates in Minnesota, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, and Maine.
