George Soros' Son Plans Fundraiser for Roberts' Challenger Orman

The son of billionaire and Democratic donor George Soros will host a fundraiser for independent Greg Orman, who is running against Republican incumbent Pat Roberts in Kansas' U.S. Senate election.

Last month, Democratic candidate Chad Taylor withdrew from the race, leaving one serious challenger — Orman — to face Roberts. If Orman wins, there is talk that he will align himself with Democrats to skew the balance of power in the Senate. Republicans need to gain six seats to take control of the chamber.

Orman has made it clear he is not tied to the Democratic Party. America Rising, however, uncovered the invitation to this week's fundraiser, which will be hosted by, among other people, Jonathan Soros.

Scheduled for Wednesday evening, the fundraiser will take place at the home of Karen and John Petry in New York City, and carries a donation limit of up to $5,200 per couple.

Orman said last week he would align himself with either the left or the right if he's elected, depending on how the balance of power shakes out after election day next month.

"I think what I've said and what I've been clear about since the beginning is if one party or the other is in the majority, I will seek to caucus with the party that is in the majority," Orman said, according to Roll Call

"But that if I get elected, and neither party is in the majority, then what I'm going to do is sit down with both sides, propose a pro-problem-solving agenda, and ask both sides whether or not they're willing to support that agenda. And we're going to be likely to support the agenda, and the party that's most likely to embrace a pro-problem-solving agenda."

Jonathan Soros has donated $3.7 million to Democratic candidates, committees, and groups, according to the Washington Free Beacon.
