Andrew Gillum’s gubernatorial campaign raised approximately $450,000 in April and more than half of those contributions came from billionaire George Soros.
In April, Soros gave $250,000 to Forward Florida, a Gillum associated political committee. If you combine this recent Soros donation with two previous six-figure donations in 2017, Soros’ contributions to Gillum now total $450,000.
The Soros family has given half a million dollars to Gillum’s campaign for governor.
Also, of the $333,500 collected in April by Forward Florida, 93% of the donations came from donors residing outside of Florida.
I guess after announcing he is planning on raising the corporate taxes, the donations from the local heavy hitters may have trickle down some. So Soros bought himself a Democrat candidate for Governor and Bloomberg bought a Republican State Senator soon-to-be Senate President. Maybe we should start a GoFundMe to buy Florida Politicians. If we buy in bulk, I am sure we can get a discount.
PS: Anybody else bothered by the fact that Rich White guys are buying Minorities? Florida suddenly feels like an antebellum plantation.
