Liberal billionaire investor George Soros kicked in $25,000 to Ready for Hillary, the super PAC organizing support for a possible 2016 presidential run by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Politico reported Thursday.
Soros will be co-chair of the group’s national finance council, Soros’ political director Michael Vachon said in an emailed statement.
“George Soros is delighted to join more than 1 million Americans in supporting Ready for Hillary,” Vachon said. “His support for Ready for Hillary is an extension of his long-held belief in the power of grass-roots organizing.”
Talking Points Memo reported the finance group is working to persuade the former first lady to run for president.
