Gillum PAC Receives $250K from George Soros, 93% of Donations from Outside of Florida


Andrew Gillum’s gubernatorial campaign raised approximately $450,000 in April and more than half of those contributions came from billionaire George Soros.

In April, Soros gave $250,000 to Forward Florida, a Gillum associated political committee. If you combine this recent Soros donation with two previous six-figure donations in 2017, Soros’ contributions to Gillum now total $450,000.

The Soros family has given half a million dollars to Gillum’s campaign for governor.

Collective Future, the 501(c)(4) that has been one of Gillum’s largest donors, gave another $35,000 to Gillum in April. Collective Future has donated approximately $260,000 to Gillum’s campaign efforts.

TR recently wrote about the mission of Collective Future, which is to elect black candidates.

Also, of the $333,500 collected in April by Forward Florida, 93% of the donations came from donors residing outside of Florida.

    I hope the FBI agents investigating corruption in Tallahassee remembers what Eric Holder said about not prosecuting people of color and does not even look into how Andy’s campaign funds are being handled.

    “Gillum has also been a favorite of the Hollywood class, having been invited to a Southern California fundraiser in March promoted by Alec Baldwin and Alyssa Milano.” – Free Beacon

    What’s next? Harvey Weintein and Anna Wintour?

    I hope soros gets zero return on his investment. He needs to use that money to pay millions of dollars in back taxes owed to various governments around the world.

    What are the chances of a Graham-Gillum ticket, given his Soros financial backing?

    “What are the chances of a Graham-Gillum ticket, given his Soros financial backing?”

    Pretty good. Right up until the Grand Jury indictments.

      Maybe George Soros can figure out a clandestine way to get some big money to a few local and Federal Judges to save his beloved Andy.
      You know just in case the FBI actually does their job here in Leon County!!!
      OMG what if George has already paid off the FBI?

    Dandy Andy is billing himself as “the true progressive” in the race for governor. In the present Dem party, that means he is the farthest left, most radical socialis-, oops! – I mean liberal.
    Great – all we need is an obama-clone who wants to “fundamentally change Florida”. Let’s see, that would mean (this is by no means a complete list):
    • Immediately raising state taxes, probably doubling them within a year or two,
    • next would be FL declared as a “sanctuary state”,
    • Followed by unconstitutional gun laws and regulations,
    • and myriad state policies and regulations which would drive businesses and jobs from FL at a rapid pace,
    • followed by high unemployment, high crime, more poverty, more shuttered stores and businesses, and widespread general deterioration.
    • as a bonus, Dandy Andy would likely appoint a cabinet and state agency leaders who are all radical leftists, so all are on the same page in converting FL to a Leftist Utopia. Gee, I can’t wait for Eric Holder to be running our state law enforcement agencies or be FL’s next attorney general!
    So if Andy is elected as governor, Welcome to California East, a bit better than present-day Venezuela, but not much.

      Gillum is the next Obama, you can bet on it. Why else do you think all kinds of people OUTSIDE of FL, including Soros are so interested in getting him elected? Fortunately I think many more are “awake” now and won’t just vote on skin color…….. hopefully.

    Apparently the liberal word has gone out to forestall the FBI investigation (you could have raised the Titanic by now considering how long it is taking them to act) ! It is sad, folks, but that is what to expect and get from the far left—–AND—-the voters blindly vote this crowd into office time and time again like sheep headed over the cliff , sad, very sad !

    I am still waiting for Tallahassee reports to publish an article about where Putnams money comes from. I bet I’ll be waiting for a long long time. If it can’t get the clicks that the Soros name does TR stays quiet
