Alex Soros Launches Bend the Arc Jewish Action PAC to Promote Jewish Values

"Expanding the Definition of Jewish Political Action" - Bend the Arc Launches First Ever National Jewish PAC Focused on Domestic Issues

ALEX SOROS

Alex Soros the son of billionaire investor George Soros, has announced the establishment of a new PAC to promote Jewish issues in America. Alex is Chair of the Board of Bend the Arc Jewish Action. This announcement comes just as the American 2016 presidential elections are heating up.

Bend the Arc organization, which calls itself the nation’s leading progressive Jewish voice solely dedicated to mobilizing Jewish Americans to advocate for the nation’s most vulnerable, has launched the Bend the Arc Jewish Action PAC.

Hadar Susskind, Director of the new political action committee, stated that it will, “expand the definition of what it means to get Jewish political support.”

“Jews are among the most progressive and engaged constituencies in American politics. The way to win our political support is by standing up for issues like marriage equality, immigration reform, racial justice and the rest of the domestic progressive agenda our community cares about most.”

The PAC has already allocated $200, 000 in committed donations to an initial slate of twelve members of Congress. Additional endorsees will be announced throughout the year.

The initial slate includes: Keith Ellison, Jan Schakowsky, Alma Adams, Ruben Gallego, Barbara Lee, Mark Takano, David Cicilline, Rick Nolan, Xavier Becerra, Mike Honda , Bonnie Watson Coleman, and Yvette Clarke.

It will also provide a vehicle for its donor community to contribute to presidential candidates.

The 29 year old Alex Soros’ father is known for supporting liberal political causes.

Hilary Clinton on the Democratic side (and maybe no one else) and Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and Rand Paul on the Republican side have all just declared themselves to be candidates for President of the United States, almost a full year before the first primary is scheduled.

So the 2016 race has already begun and now is the time for people like Soros,  one of several prominent Jewish Democrats, to get busy.

“There’s a tremendous hunger among American Jews for a political voice that is focused on their real priorities”, he said, “Until today, there has been no Jewish PAC focused on domestic issues. That’s why we came together to launch Bend the Arc Jewish Action PAC, ”

“I think this is filling a very important role in the Jewish world and I think it’s filling an important role in the progressive world. This PAC is tapping the political power and resources of America’s Jews and putting them to work for the progressive movement.”
