Soros and Other Liberal Donors to Fund Bid to Spur Latino Voters

The billionaire George Soros and other liberal donors will bankroll a new $15 million campaign to mobilize Latinos and other immigrants this fall, hoping to channel outrage at the political rhetoric of Donald J. Trump and other Republicans into a surge of votes for Democrat candidates in November.

Strategists involved said the new spending would be the largest Democrat voter-turnout effort ever devoted exclusively to Latino and immigrant voters. Most of the money will be spent through organizations in Colorado, Florida and Nevada, states with large or growing Latino and Asian populations that will be pivotal in the presidential race and in the battle for control of the Senate.

The outreach, which will be coordinated through a new “super PAC” called Immigrant Voters Win PAC, will be more explicitly political and partisan than past efforts, the strategists said: The goal was to not only turn out committed Latinos already voting Democrat but also find and persuade immigrant swing voters. Ultimately, organizers hope to get at least 400,000 new Democrat voters to the polls in November.

Mr. Soros has committed another $5 million to a Democrat-led legal campaign to contest restrictive voting laws in states like Ohio, Wisconsin, and North Carolina.

Wrong statement. There are no restrictive voting laws. You just have to be legal.

Soros is behind every group trying to destroy America and bring it into the one world government and funds democrats to sell us out.

Check it out. Soros is funding these protester events at Trump rallies and says he will continue to keep Trump from becoming the GOP pick to run against Hillary. He supports Hillary, by the way.

If you can't win the game, change the rules! Democrats can only lie, cheat & steal. They know they can't win on merit!
