According to a new report from the Washington Examiner, a George Soros-funded political action committee with links to a far-left wing dark money group has already spent thousands of dollars supporting Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) in his reelection run against Republican Herschel Walker and plans to spend even more during the upcoming run-off election.
The Georgia Senate election will go to a runoff for the second time in two years after neither Warnock nor Walker received over 50% of the state’s vote.
The extraordinarily tight Senate race was neck and neck, when Black Voters Matter Action PAC spent over $141,600 on independent expenditures to support Warnock only days before Election Day on November 4.
According to Federal Election Commission records, the money was largely spent on radio, video, and car advertisements in support of Warnock’s candidacy.
In the first three months of 2020, Democracy PAC spent $28.3 million to assist a range of liberal initiatives in time for the presidential election.
BVM Action PAC, which was founded in 2020 and previously supported Warnock and Sen. Jon Ossoff (D-GA), is led by left-wing activists and co-founders.
In 2020, the PAC received $1.25 million from Democracy PAC, which Soros founded in 2019 to influence the 2020 presidential election and is mostly funded by him.
According to tax documents, the Ford Foundation, one of the largest liberal foundations, donated more than $1.6 million to the BVM Fund.
The BVM Fund also got $500,000 from Soros’ Open Society Foundation.
$335,000 was received from Neo Philanthropy, a fiscal sponsor for leftist organizations, and approximately $354,000 from the New Venture Fund.
According to public documents, the BVM Fund also received $335,000 from the Windward Fund, an ecological nonprofit company administered by Arabella Advisors.
The Tides Foundation, another major grantmaker and pass-through institution, also contributed $1.2 million to the BVM Fund. The Libra Foundation, which is led by Nicholas Pritzker, the former CEO of Hyatt Development Corporation, and mostly finances “social justice” initiatives, gave BVM Fund $2.3 million in 2020.
According to records, BVM Action PAC spent approximately $390,400 on independent expenditures promoting Democratic candidates between 2021 and 2022.
On November 4, it spent the most money on radio advertising for Warnock.
In addition, one of the group’s co-founders told Axios that it intends to spend an additional 1.7 million dollars supporting Warnock during his runoff contest with Herschel Walker.
