Say what? Kasich gets over $700,000 from Soros, surrogates

Soros_talk_in_MalaysiaOn Wednesday, we observed that Ohio Gov. John Kasich received over $200,000 from the Soros Fund Management, but it turns out that he’s gotten more than that from Soros and his surrogates.  A report at Life Site News says he’s actually gotten over $700,000.

According to Life Site News:

A simple search of Governor Kasich’s 2016 Presidential campaign donations lists the Soros Fund Management as the sixth highest individual donor with $202,700. The seventh largest donor is the Duquesne Family Office with $150,000.  On the Super PAC side, Kasich’s New Day for America received $150,000 from Stanley Drukenmiller (who operates the Duquesne Family Office) and $200,000 from Scott Beset, who is employed by the Soros Fund Management.

Scott Bessent served as George Soros’ chief investment manager until late 2015, while Stanley Druckenmiller currently manages $2 billion of Soros’ hedge funds. Clearly, these three names, George Soros, Scott Bessent, and Stanly Drukenmiller represent George Soros just as New Day for America and Kasich for America represent Governor John Kasich.

In total therefore, George Soros, personally and through surrogates, has donated over $700,000 to Governor John Kasich’s campaign.

Say what?

Why is Kasich accepting this money?  As we said earlier, he’s hoping to keep Ted Cruz and Donald Trump from getting the number of delegates they need to win the GOP nomination outright.

At this point, there’s no way he can win — not only would he have to win more than 100 percent of all the remaining delegates, but he would have to win at least eight states — something that is unlikely to happen given his record so far.

So why is Soros giving Kasich so much money?

Gualberto Garcia Jones opines:

George Soros has already funded Hillary Clinton’s campaign to the tune of $8 million.  Could it be that by funding the campaign of Governor John Kasich, George Soros is attempting to help Hillary Clinton by sabotaging the GOP primary process?

Of course…

Soros himself wrote: “…we must reaffirm our commitment to the principles of open society and resist the siren song of the likes of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, however hard that may be.”

Hmmm. In other words, Soros is betting that Kasich will stay in the race so as to ultimately hand the White House to Hillary Clinton…

No question about it, it’s time for Kasich to drop out of the race…
