Soros’ Multimillion-Dollar Bid To Swing Outcomes Of Multiple California Races Fails

New York billionaire George Soros’ efforts to swing California’s criminal justice system in a more progressive direction fell short Tuesday with major defeats in multiple district attorneys races across the Golden State.

As previously reported by The Western Journal, Soros spent more than $2.7 million in California DA races this election cycle.

Among the contests the self-described philanthropist waded into were San Diego County (where he spent $1.5 million), Sacramento Country ($400,000), Alameda ($559,000), and Contra Costa County ($275,000).

The Los Angles Times reported that Soros worked in conjunction with other wealthy donors to back “would-be prosecutors who want to reduce incarceration, crack down on police misconduct and revamp a bail system they contend unfairly imprisons poor people before trial.”

The Soros-supported candidates lost big in San Diego, Sacramento and Alameda counties, while the race is still too close to call in Contra Costa County in the San Francisco Bay Area.
