Politico: George Soros Helps Pro-Hillary Groups Hit $24 Million Mark

By    |   Thursday, 02 Jul 2015 10:12 PM

A pair of $2 million donations from George Soros and Haim Saban were among the more than $24 million three groups raised for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign this year.

According to a Politico report, two super PACs and a nonprofit took in $24.3 million during the first half of this year — which accounts for more than half of the $45 million raised by the campaign since it launched in April.

Super PACs Priorities USA Action and American Bridge 21st Century took in $15.6 million and $7.7 million, respectively. A third group, the American Bridge 21st Century Foundation, brought in an additional $1 million, according to Politico.

Saban, according to Forbes, is the 172nd richest person in the United States. He gave $2 million to Priorities USA Action. His fellow billionaire, Soros, whose net worth of $24 billion makes him the 29th richest person in the world (and 19th in the U.S.), gave $1 million to Priorities USA Action and another million to American Bridge 21st Century, reports Politico.

A chunk of the Clinton donations came from Hollywood, a sign things have turned around from earlier this year when Clinton's email scandal was making headlines.

Clinton recently stopped in Hollywood for a fundraiser hosted by actor Tobey Maguire and his wife, Jennifer. According to a CBS News report, several high-profile Hollywood names donated to the two aforementioned super PACs, a list that includes DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg and producer/directors Steven Spielberg and JJ Abrams.

Politico reports that Soros also donated $1 million to America Votes, a left-leaning nonprofit group.

Clinton's chief Democratic rival in the race, at least at the moment, is Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders — who has raised a reported $15 million since joining the race on April 30, reports NBC News.

Sanders has surged in several polls and is now close to Clinton in New Hampshire and Iowa.
