Far-left billionaire George Soros is putting millions of dollars into an attack ad campaign against President Trump over his handling of the coronavirus outbreak, as reported by the Washington Free Beacon.
The ads come from Priorities USA Action, the largest pro-Democrat super PAC in America, which will spend $6 million this week alone on such ads, targeting the key swing states of Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. Priorities USA had previously received over $3 million from Soros’s Democracy PAC as recently as February 21st.
Priorities USA said that its overall plan is to spend at least $150 million in the general election campaign against President Trump in Rust Belt states, which are the states that will ultimately decide the election.
Another group that will engage in such attacks is the American Bridge PAC, founded by far-left operative David Brock. American Bridge has vowed to spend at least $50 million attacking Trump in the Midwest. Brock is affiliated with the Democracy Alliance, another organization that is funded and cofounded by Soros.
Lastly, Soros has also most recently funded a project called the Heartland Fund, which intends to target Midwestern and Rust Belt voters in the election. For this effort, Soros teamed up with failed congressional candidate Scott Wallace, who lost his bid for Pennsylvania’s 1st congressional district in 2018.
