George Soros, an ultra-leftist oligarch, is funding a new Texas political action committee.
Fox News referred to Texas Majority PAC as a “mysterious Texas organization that is constructing progressive infrastructure.”
In the first half of this year, the Soros-backed Democracy PAC transferred $750,000 to the Texas Majority PAC, according to FEC filings.
Soros appears to be the organization’s financial savior, as a separate filing reveals it raised a total of $752,040 during those months.
The website mobilize.us, which advertised a meeting between the new PAC and Dallas-area Democrats, said “Texas Majority PAC is a project started in 2023 focused on growing our Democratic majority and winning statewide elections.”
“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.”
The group’s website says that “Texas Majority PAC is a project dedicated to electing a Democrat to statewide office in Texas. We are conducting research to understand what it will take to win the state.”
According to Fox News, the organization was incorporated in December.
Fox said job postings call the group “a research and development institution dedicated to flipping Texas blue by building year-round Democratic infrastructure in the key regions of Texas.”
“TMP invests in partners running voter engagement and turnout programs in an effort to bring their work to the scale required to win statewide office in Texas,” Fox said the postings proclaim.
The PAC spent $600,000 in the first six months of this year.
George Soros thinks he can buy Texas.

In November, The Texas Tribune discussed the difficulty of turning Texas blue in light of the 2022 election results.
“Voters returned GOP incumbents to their jobs at the top of the ticket and handed the state’s dominant party its 14th consecutive sweep of statewide offices,” the Tribune reported.
“Republicans also seemed poised to add slightly to their majorities in the Texas Legislature, where they’ve controlled both chambers for 20 years, and held large leads in all statewide judicial races.”
According to The Hill, Soros invested $1 million in Beto O’Rourke’s unsuccessful campaign against Republican Governor Greg Abbott in 2018.
