George Soros-backed district attorney candidates sweep elections

Far-left district attorney candidates who appeared on November ballots and received backing from billionaire George Soros have swept their elections, according to a nationwide search of records and election results.

Fox News Digital performed a 50-state search of campaign finance databases and identified at least four prosecutor candidates who received financial backing from Soros and won their November elections, including two newcomers and two candidates he’s previously backed.

Once set up, the financier injects money into the PACs, which tend to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars backing his preferred candidates. The PACs typically dissolve after the elections.

In some past cases, Tymas established committees on the city level, such as in Philadelphia for District Attorney Larry Krasner. Fox News Digital’s sweep solely covered state databases, which means there could be more candidates.

Soros steered $300,000 to the Maine Justice & Public Safety PAC in May. That money backed Jackie Sartoris, who defeated Cumberland County’s Democratic District Attorney Jonathan Sahrbeck in a June primary. No Republican or independent candidate filed
