The Washington Free Beacon is reporting today that a California megadonor, Stephen Silberstein, aligned with the Democracy Alliance has dropped $20,000 into Mississippi Democrat gubernatorial candidate Jim Hood’s campaign. This represents about 10% of his latest contributions in his most recent campaign finance report.
From the article …
“Silberstein has a long history of supporting Democrats on the national level and sits on the board for National Popular Vote Inc., a 501(c)4 dedicated to implementing a nationwide popular election for president. In 2016, he was among one of the top 20 donors to Hillary Clinton’s Super PAC, Priorities USA Action, contributing $800,000 to the committee.”
The Democracy Alliance organization is affiliated with George Soros, and according to their site they “play a leading role in fostering the infrastructure necessary to advance a progressive agenda for America”.
So far this cycle, Silberstein has also put money into the presidential campaigns of South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg and Senator Elizabeth Warren.
