(LifeSiteNews) — Leftist billionaire George Soros and his son Alex, who now runs the political operations for the family, recently maxed out their donations to President Joe Biden’s re-election campaign.
The elder Soros gave $6,600 to the Biden for President fund, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) data. Individuals can contribute $3,300 per candidate per election, but because the primary and general elections count as two separate races, each candidate can receive $6,600 from donors.
Alex Soros also gave the maximum $6,600, according to FEC filings.
However, these donations represent just a fraction of what the Soros family is expected to spend on Biden’s 2024 re-election campaign.
The separate “Biden Victory Fund” can receive much higher limits. “During the last presidential race, Alex Soros provided the Biden Victory Fund with over $720,000, while George Soros added more than $500,000 to the committee’s coffers,” Fox News reported. “The two also maxed out donations to Biden’s campaign that election cycle.”
Candidates can raise more money through a “Joint Fundraising Committee” which can partner the presidential campaign with the national and state affiliates.
The younger Soros’ donations are not surprising, given his continuing influence on Democratic Party politics, which includes “at least 20” visits to the White House since Biden took office, according to Fox News.
He also is working to influence international politics, much like his father. “In 2023, Alex attended the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland,” LifeSiteNews previously reported. “His Instagram account has pictures of him alongside U.S. President Joe Biden, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, among others.”
“According to CNN, the Soros-run Democracy PAC gave $81 million in political donations from 2019 to 2020,” LifeSiteNews previously reported. “The Open Society Foundation has reportedly given grants totaling $19 billion with the intent of promoting neoliberal and secular policies since its founding in 1979.”
However, Open Society is also shedding workers, with plans to fire at least 40 percent of its workforce, as recently reported by LifeSite.
