George Soros was hoping 2018 would be his year.
He spent millions supporting Democrats in the midterm election.
But he just got his worst news of 2018.
Democrats Take Back The House, With Some Soros’ Wins
The midterm election may seem like a good thing for Democrats.
They now have the House.
But they lost ground in the Senate.
They clearly did worse than what many experts were expecting.
And for George Soros, it is a mix between victory and loss.
The darling of the socialist wing of the Democrat Party, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez won.
She will now serve in Congress and openly supports socialism.
Soros spent big supporting her bid for Congress.
So that race is one he can take pride in.
But not every race Soros got involved in went his way.
And one race, in particular, will ruin his year.
Soros Loses A Huge Race
In Florida, Soros went big for the midterms.
In support of Democrat Andrew Gillum, he dropped over $600,000.
Gillum was challenging Ron DeSantis for the Governor’s seat.
He leans closer to socialism than most Democrats.
And his prospects for winning were high.
But on Election Day, he lost to DeSantis.
The loss is angering to liberals across the country.
Bernie Sanders even went so far as to say Gillum only lost because he’s black.
But in reality, those in Florida rejected his far-left agenda.
It is becoming clear that people don’t support the far-left of the Democrat Party.
This is especially true in conservative states like Florida.
While socialism might win in states like New York and California, it doesn’t work in more conservative states.
And this infuriates people like George Soros, who are angry at the Democrat Party.
Soros Makes His Feelings On The Democrat Party Clear
Soros had made no qualms about his feelings on the state of the Democrat Party.
Speaking to the New York Times, Soros let loose exactly what he feels about the party and its former leader Barack Obama.
On Obama, Soros told them he is “actually my greatest disappointment.”
Along with that Soros said that he doesn’t particularly want to be a Democrat.
That anger seems to be fueling his recent decisions on political support.
Supporting Gillum and Ocasio-Cortez isn’t really supporting the Democrat Party.
While they are Democrats, they stand in opposition to the establishment of the party.
Their policies go to the left of more established figures in the party like Nancy Pelosi.
And he’s putting his money towards making their beliefs more mainstream.
So Gillum’s loss is bad news for him on that front.
But Ocasio-Cortez’s win is great, considering he finally has a strong ally in the House.
Only time will tell if socialism will be the future of the Democrat Party.
But they sure do have money on their side.
George Soros is one of the wealthiest political donors.
And he’s willing to spend the money necessary to win.
Do you think socialism is the future of the Democrat Party?
