Report: George Soros will sit out during 2020 Democrat primaries

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

For many years now, liberal billionaire George Soros has become ubiquitous with Democratic Party politics as the globalist elitist has thrown the weight of his vast fortune behind a variety of pet progressive causes and candidates that he prefers.

That could be about to change, though — at least through the 2020 Democratic primary season — as the billionaire is reportedly hesitant to pledge his wealth and support to any one candidate out of the exceedingly large field of potential candidates who have emerged thus far.

CNBC reported that Soros has informed his top aides that he may actually sit out the primary and allow the field of candidates to sort itself out without any influence from his funding.

Too many candidates to choose from

Michael Vachon, chief spokesman for Soros, told CNBC in an email: “He doesn’t plan to pick a horse in this race.”

That reply came in response to a query about where Soros stood on a number of candidates. Though Vachon declined to name names, he did say that Soros was refraining from making a commitment out of the large potential field because he “thinks there are several good candidates.”

But while Soros may refrain from using his wealth to influence the outcome of Democratic Primary elections, the clear implication is that he will eventually throw his considerable financial support behind whomever ultimately ends up receiving the Democrats’ nomination in 2020.

Usually backs a particular horse early on

The withholding of support during the primary season is a departure from recent past trends for Soros, who, in previous election cycles, got involved in backing specific candidates early in the process.

In 2016, there was no doubt whatsoever that Soros supported the candidacy of failed nominee Hillary Clinton from the start over that of her main challenger, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, an official independent. Indeed, in just one aspect of that overwhelming support, Soros reportedly contributed some $343,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund, a joint fundraising committee that supported both the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee (DNC) ahead of Nov. 8, 2016.

Rewind even further to the 2008 presidential election, and we find that Soros had begun to financially support the candidacy of then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama in early 2007, long before it was clear to the general public that he would receive the nomination of his party.

Fast-forward to the upcoming 2020 Democratic primary season, where we have a field of more than two dozen potential candidates ranging from far-left progressives to relatively moderate liberals, and from truly grassroots candidates to ultra-wealthy billionaires attempting to be the leftist version of Donald Trump.

George Soros may not be involving himself directly in the 2020 Democrat primaries by backing a particular candidate, but he will undoubtedly continue to use his wealth during that time to support progressive leftist organizations — and it is even more likely that he will end up supporting whomever eventually emerges victorious from the crowded Democratic field.

While his presence may not be obvious in the primary process, Soros’ temporary departure from leftist politics will most likely not be for good.
