Billionaire and liberal financier George Soros made a second donation of $250,000 to Andrew Gillum’s PAC to support the Florida Democrat’s campaign for governor, The Washington Free Beacon reported.
The PAC belonging to Gillum, the mayor of Tallahassee, has received $700,000 from Soros since the beginning of the campaign cycle.
Gillum was also the beneficiary of a Hollywood fundraiser in March which actress Alyssa Milano and actor Alec Baldwin attended, the report said.
California billionaire Tom Steyer has also supported Gillum, adding $1 million in organizational and advertising support for Gillum, Politico reported Friday.
Jeff Greene, a billionaire who is challenging Gillum for the Democratic candidacy, criticized the influence of Soros and Steyer.
“If you want to have Florida be managed by George Soros and whatever he wants, regardless of whether the governor likes it, and Tom Steyer, then you can go with Andrew Gillum,” said Greene, The Free Beacon reported.
