Ainsworth rallies Alabama voters after George Soros’ involvement in upcoming election revealed
After Yellowhammer News revealed that billionaire George Soros this week directly dumped $200,000 into a group of Tuscaloosa PACs that has been Democratic gubernatorial nominee and Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox’s biggest contributor, the Republican nominee for Lieutenant Governor, state Rep. Will Ainsworth (R-Guntersville), issued a warning and a rallying call to Alabama voters.
“Billionaire George Soros is flooding Alabama with several hundred thousand dollars in last minute contributions to Walt Maddox and other liberal Democrats on the Nov. 6 ballot,” posted on Facebook.
Ainsworth continued, “Soros wants to replace our conservative principles and Alabama values with his Socialist progressive agenda. We must not let the pro-abortion, anti-gun and tax-raiding liberals become competitive. Please tell your, friends, neighbors, and church members to vote the Straight Republican ticket on Nov. 6!”
Combined with almost $1 million in dark money funneled into the state from Planned Parenthood, political observers in the state expect the Soros money to go towards attempting to boost Democratic turnout on Election Day. Maddox, Planned Parenthood and other out-of-state liberal groups are opposing a pro-life constitutional amendment on the ballot – Amendment Two.
