George Soros’ son, Alex, is leading a new super PAC geared at liberal Jewish Americans – and it’s going to focus on domestic issues rather than on Israel, reported Politico’s Tarini Parti.
The new “Bend the Arc” PAC is reportedly the first ever Jewish super PAC not to make Israel-related issues a top priority, choosing to focus instead on things like immigration, gay marriage, and income inequality.
“One of the reasons behind doing this is that [the other Jewish groups] aren’t really representing the views of the American Jewish community. And we know full well that the bluntest language in politics comes down to political dollars,” the PAC’s director, Hadar Susskind, told Politico.
Alex Soros, 29, has yet to ask his father for a contribution, but other donors include Marc Baum, Paul Egerman, and Terry Winograd, according to the report.
