Kasich Campaign Boosted By Unlikely George Soros Donations
John Kasich has seen his stock slowly rising in the GOP nominations cycle as the party has found difficulties with fighting the rise of the cult of personality that surrounds front runner Donald Trump. The Political Insider has recently revealed one of the major donors for the Democrats, George Soros, has inserted himself into the Republican elections with a donation of more than $500,000 to a Super PAC supporting Kasich for President. Two of the main allies of Soros in his hedge fund business, which according to a NY Book article provided the Hungarian born former refugee with a personal fortune of more than $25 billion have made donations to Kasich’s soft fund as he continues to battle Trump.
George Soros has been reported by Latino Fox News to looked to back political and educational campaigns around the world over recent years as he looked increasingly towards philanthropic efforts as his political giving tailed off during the 2008 election. George Soros believes every person on the planet has the right to understand democracy and have the chance to explore as many educational opportunities as possible throughout their life; to achieve his goals the hedge fund legend created his own Open Society Foundations in the 1980s, initially in a bid to help those affected by Apartheid in South Africa.
The career of George Soros began when he traveled across Europe as a refugee to London where he completed his education in finance; from London Soros moved to New York to begin his Wall Street career. Soros built a hedge fund averaging 20 percent growth for more than three decades that provided him with a personal fortune of more than $25 billion; perhaps the most famous act Soros undertook in his career was forcing the devaluation of the British Pound in 1992.
Over the course of the 2016 election cycle John Kasich has been classed as the moderate candidate for the GOP nomination, but has failed to get his message across to the majority of GOP voters who are standing behind real estate mogul Donald Trump.
Forbes billionaire George Soros has become part of the Republican campaigning season with donations totaling more than $500,000 according to bloomberg business made to what is known as the soft fund of Kasich, the Federal Elections Commission has revealed. The move comes after Soros explained his opposition to both Trump and his main rival Ted Cruz for their anti immigration policies, which include the construction of a wall spanning the border between the U.S. and Mexico.
