According to Fox News, billionaire liberal mega donor George Soros and his daughter Andrea Soros Colombel are backing 13 far-left candidates in the 2022 election.
“The Soros money has flowed to a joint fundraising committee and a PAC attached to the efforts. The joint fundraising venture, called Lead the Way 2022, includes the Way to Lead PAC, Missouri Rep. Cori Bush’s campaign committee, and the campaigns of the 12 other progressive politicians attempting to enter Congress,” Fox New reports.
From Fox News:
Lead the Way 2022 has transferred nearly $40,000 into Bush’s campaign coffers this cycle, the filings show. The Missouri Democrat has been an outspoken proponent of police defunding.
Rana Abdelhamid, who is running in New York’s 12th congressional district, has received $28,000 from Lead the Way 2022. Abdelhamid has called defunding law enforcement a feminist “priority” in now-deleted Instagram posts.
“Intimate Partner Violence is up to 4x higher in homes of cops than the general population,” she wrote in a graphic, citing the National Center for Women and Policing. Another graphic in the post encouraged readers to donate to “Defund the Police Efforts.”
Kina Collins, a candidate in Illinois’ 7th district, was also provided $28,000 by Lead the Way 2022. Collins participated in a defund the police rally and has called for the abolition of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Odessa Kelly, attempting to win a House seat in Tennessee’s 7th district, was given nearly $41,000 from Lead the Way 2022. Kelly signaled her support for defunding the police in an interview with Our Data Bodies.
