Billionaire philanthropist George Soros is almost exclusively funding a political action committee that aims to elect Democrats in Texas, according to Federal Election Commission filings released earlier this month.

According to Federal Election Commission filings released last Monday, George Soros’s Democracy PAC II has provided $750,000 to the Texas Majority PAC during the year’s first half. Meanwhile, the Texas Majority PAC’s state filings show that the group raised $752,040 during that time. Soros’ PAC provided 99.7% of the group’s funds, according to The Dallas Express.

Texas incorporation records show the group was founded in December 2022. The group has a website at

“​​Texas Majority PAC is a project dedicated to electing a Democrat to statewide office in Texas,” the website states. “We are conducting research to understand what it will take to win the state.”

“It’s time to elect a Democrat to statewide office in Texas. Let’s get to work,” the front page urges visitors.

Texas Majority PAC hosted an event this year with the Dallas County Democratic Party, according to

“Texas Majority PAC is a project started in 2023 focused on growing our Democratic majority and winning statewide elections,” the event description reads. “Over the past few months, our team has been hard at work hosting listening sessions and researching what it’s going to take to turn Texas Blue and we want to hear from you.”

“Your involvement and input are key. We are hosting a community conversation with the Dallas County Democratic Party, where we’ll recap outcomes from the 2022 election cycle, hear from community leaders about their experiences volunteering and reaching voters, as well as provide strategy on how we’re going to flip Texas Blue together. We look forward to seeing you there.”

The groups financial reports show that in the first six months of the year, the group spent around $600,000, with Lake Research Partners, a political consulting firm that has represented the presidential campaigns of Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, and Bill Clinton, being the largest recipent of that, receiving nearly $100,000.

The next two highest expenses were consulting fees — $91,000 to Katherine Ann Fischer and $67,500 to Jason Lee.

A Katherine Ann Fischer served as a regional organizing director on Beto O’Rourke’s campaign for governor of Texas in 2022. A Jason Lee, who is also the son of U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), served as deputy campaign manager in that race. It is not yet clear if these are the same individuals.

Soros has made billions as a hedge fund manager and now spends much of his fortune funding liberal causes. According to Soros’ group, Open Society Foundation, “In 2017, the Open Society Foundations announced that Soros had transferred $18 billion of his fortune towards funding the future work of the Foundations, bringing his total giving to the Foundations since 1984 to over $32 billion.”

In 2022, Soros donated $1 million to Democrat gubernatorial candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke in his failed bid against Governor Greg Abbott.
