Soros Donates $1 Million to Obama Super PAC

But this is different because they don't like doing it

|

Billionaire financier George Soros has given $1 million to the primary super PAC helping President Obama.

The funding is a boost to Priorities USA Action in the final weeks of the campaign.

Democratic super PACs generally have lagged their GOP counterparts this year in attracting big checks from wealthy donors, in part because Obama initially was opposed to such a move. Obama opposed the Supreme Court decision that paved the way for unlimited campaign donations from wealthy individuals, but he relented after GOP groups helping Mitt Romney began raising huge sums.
