George Soros pumped over $2 million into Texas Democratic Party and PACs in second half of 2023

Left-wing political backer and billionaire George Soros was revealed to have donated millions to Democratic Party entities in Texas throughout the latter half of 2023.

The Texas Majority PAC and several Democrat county parties took money from Soros between August-December 2023, with the PAC reportedly run by former members of Robert "Beto" O'Rourke's 2022 campaign, according to the Texas Tribune.

On the receiving end of the Soros funds were Democratic Party affiliates in Cameron, Dallas, and Hidalgo, Texas. Along with some regional PACs, Soros also gave a reported $1 million to the Texas Majority PAC in August 2023, and another $400,000 in October 2023.

Officially, the contributions were intended to help entities register, contact, and support voter turnout "on a scale never seen before, year after year, in the key regions" of Texas, the PAC’s deputy executive director, Katherine Fischer, reportedly said.

"We need millions of more dollars and hundreds of more full-time staff to do this," Fischer continued. "Texas Majority PAC works with partners across the state to create the conditions that will make flipping the state possible."

Fischer was the organizing director for O'Rourke's gubernatorial campaign. Jason Lee, O'Rourke's deputy campaign manager, is also working in the Texas Majority PAC. They are joined by Crystal Zermeño, a former staffer for the Texas Organizing Project, an group that also received at least $250,000 from Soros in 2023.

Yet another O'Rourke staffer, 2022 campaign manager Nick Rathod, was credited for helping organize the Texas Majority PAC.

Cameron County Democratic Chair Jared Hockema reportedly praised Soros, citing him as a Holocaust survivor while noting that Republicans too have relied on big, out-of-state donors.

"George Soros is a person who knows what’s at stake in the election we face," Hockema said. He knows the "specter of authoritarianism and fascism," he added.

Executive director for the Texas Democratic Party, Monique Alcala, told the Texas Tribune that the party "welcomes any new investments and efforts that collectively achieve the ambitious goals of keeping Joe Biden in the White House."

She also said she hoped to send "Ted Cruz packing" while "electing more Texas Democrats up and down the ballot."

"With a state as big as Texas, there is no time or dollar to waste, and we’re ready to roll up our sleeves and get to work," Alcala explained.
