Alexander Soros, the son of liberal billionaire George Soros, has given nearly $3 million to Democratic committees this election cycle for the midterm elections, Federal Election Commission filings show.
Alex acts as the deputy chair of the Open Society Foundations, his father’s nonprofit that disburses large sums of cash to liberal organizations and causes, and has followed in his father’s footsteps in recent years by becoming a major liberal donor.
Alex’s largest donation this cycle was for $2 million to the Senate Majority PAC (SMP), a committee launched by former staffers of retired Nevada senator Harry Reid that is dedicated to electing and keeping Democrats in the Senate.
SMP reports nearly $80 million in contributions this cycle, and Alex’s $2 million donation makes him one of the top donors to the PAC, its filings show. The group has already dished out more than $30 million in independent expenditures this cycle backing Democrats.
Alex added $33,900 to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s coffers. Another $101,700 was given to the committee’s headquarters account while $101,700 went to the committee’s recount account.
