(RightWing.org) – Billionaire businessman George Soros has been the man pulling the strings behind the scenes within the Democratic Party for years. But it seems the national and state races weren’t enough. He’s exercising his financial muscle in local county elections too.
According to an Orlando Sentinel report, a new political committee is trying to help Democrat Monique Worrell become the next state attorney for Osceola and Orange counties in Florida. Our Vote Our Voice has raised more than $2.2 million for the race, and $1 million of it is from the Soros-backed group Democracy PAC.
New: A group funded in part by a George Soros PAC is spending at least $1.5 million on a last-minute ad blitz in support of Monique Worrell, one of four Democrats running to be next the next top prosecutor in Orlando: https://t.co/J8M09M2krd

This isn’t the first time Soros has inserted himself into state attorney elections. In 2016, he raised $1.3 million for current Orange-Osceola State Attorney Aramis Ayala. In 2019, he spent $800,000 in Western New York to support Shani Curry Mitchell in a district attorney race. Soros donated $2 million to a PAC supporting Cook County, Illinois State’s Attorney Kim Foxx.
The list goes on. Soros’s hand is in a lot of election pots, and it leaves people to wonder: should one man have so much power?
