Soros caps off midterm spending with $50M super PAC contribution

Either directly or through his affiliated super PACs, Soros in the 2022 cycle, gave $14 million to Senate Majority PAC, the flagship Senate Democratic super PAC. That includes $1 million for the Georgia runoff, which Sen. Raphael Warnock won on Tuesday night, giving Democrats a 51-seat majority in the Senate. Soros sent another $5 million to House Majority PAC, the main House Democratic super PAC, according to the person directly familiar with the Democracy PAC filing.

Other major recipients of Soros’ contributions this election cycle included: Stacey Abrams, who received $4 million but lost her bid for Georgia governor; the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, which received $1.5 million; and Planned Parenthood, the Working Families Party and J Street, each of which got $1 million.

Last January, Soros seeded Democracy PAC with $125 million, a “long-term investment” in his political priorities. The group was formed to support pro-democracy “causes and candidates, regardless of party” and to invest in “strengthening the infrastructure of American democracy: voting rights and civic participation, civil rights and liberties, and the rule of law,” Soros said in a statement at the time.

Soros’ son, Alexander, has served as the PAC’s president.
