Florida is a major battleground for President Donald Trump considering the Sunshine State’s importance to Trump’s re-election quest in 2020.
Democrats are making a full-court press to elect Andrew Gillum over Trump supporter Ron DeSantis, which would give Democrats the governorship when Trump comes up for re-election, and would give Democrats as many as four picks on the Florida Supreme Court, according to close observers.
But the dirtiest play they’re pulling in Florida is known as Amendment 4.
Amendment 4 is a ballot initiative to restore voting rights to felons in the state of Florida, similar to Terry McAuliffe’s ploy to give felons voting rights in Virginia. This would have a big impact on the 2020 election.
George Soros has contributed $1.5 million to the effort to support Amendment 4, according to a report from the Center for Public Integrity. Other billionaires are also spending big on the effort, including Nicholas Pritzker according to the report, which is sourced in part from Open Society Foundations records:
