Liberal billionaire George Soros has vowed to donate $1 million apiece this year to the pro-Democrat organizations American Bridge 21st Century and America Votes.
American Bridge is a research group that will focus on Republican candidates, and America Votes is a coalition that includes unions, environmentalists and women’s groups. Both organizations are based in Washington.
“As he has in the past, George is focusing his political giving in 2012 on grassroots organizing and holding conservatives accountable for the flawed policies they promote,” Vachon wrote.
Soros contributed $23.7 million in 2004 to pro-Democratic political organizations, more than any other donor, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, a Washington-based research group.
