The super PAC Priorities USA has brought Democratic superlawyer Marc Elias onto its board and plans to focus on fighting state-level GOP efforts to restrict voting access in courts and legislatures.
During the most recent presidential election, Priorities USA served as a pro-Clinton super PAC. Soros provided at least $8.5 million to the group, including $6 million in December 2015 and another $2.5 million in August 2016, public records show.
The Hill reported in January 2016 after Soros's first contribution:
In the last 6 months, the super-PAC raised $25.3 million, meaning that Soros's contribution accounted for almost a quarter of its fundraising haul.
Following the election, Priorities USA is seeking to "reposition itself as a hub of post-2016 Democratic activity," Politico reported last month.
