Soros Forces GOP Candidate Out of Race for District Attorney in Henry County
September 15, 2016
(henryherald.com) Matt McCord announced his withdrawal from the race effective immediately, after apparently learning of a six-figure donation to assist his Democrat opponent, Darius Pattillo.
“After consulting with my family and trusted advisers, it has become clear that we will most likely not be successful against an unlimitedly financed opponent, and I refuse to put my family through what has transpired in other Soros-backed elections,” McCord stated in an email the the Henry Herald. “Please understand that I do not make this decision lightly.”
According to the Georgia Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Commissioner, Soros Fund Management donated $100,000 to the Georgia Safety & Justice committee on Aug. 30. Over $91,000 from the account is listed as expenditures for consulting, research, and polling services for Pattillo.
