    The Open Society billionaire had to face a series of embarrassing defeats in the most “progressive” state in the United States. The losses in California may signal the end of his success. Michael Smolens, a columnist with the San Diego Tribune noted that the political pendulum may be “swinging against Soros and his progressive coalition”.

    Together with the American Civil Liberties Union, Soros poured millions of dollars into four DA races in the state to get “progressives” elected, but judges running against Soros’s candidates beat their opponents by wide margins.

    Conservative Sacramento incumbent Anne Marie Schubert won with 64 percent of the vote, incumbent Republican Summer Stephan also with 64 percent in San Diego and Alameda County incumbent District Attorney Nancy O’Malley received 60 percent of the vote.

    Soros had been betting on the supposed anti-Republican backlash caused by President Donald Trump. But according to the Daily Caller even Soros-backed candidate, Contra Costa County District Attorney Diana Becton, may face a runoff in the November general election if she fails to win more than 50 percent in a recount.

    Since 2014, Soros has spent more than $2.7 million in DA races in California alone, boosting “progressive” candidates. Altogether, he has spent some $16 million in 17 races in other states, in which his candidates won 13.
