George Soros Backs Hillary Clinton For President In 2016…

It was only a matter of time before the Horned One made an appearance.

Via WaPo:
George Soros, the billionaire investor, philanthropist and backer of liberal causes, has signed on to be a co-chair of the national finance council for Ready for Hillary, the super PAC mobilizing support for a possible White House bid by Hillary Rodham Clinton.

“George Soros is delighted to join more than one million Americans in supporting Ready for Hillary,” Michael Vachon, Soros’s political director, said in a statement. “His support for Ready for Hillary is an extension of his long-held belief in the power of grassroots organizing.”

The commitment by Soros – announced by the super PAC Thursday — represents another heavyweight endorsement for the group, which was started earlier this year by Clinton supporters. Other members of the national finance council, who must contribute or raise $25,000, include Esprit co-founder Susie Tompkins Buell, entrepreneur Jo Ousterhout and attorneys Steve and Amber Mostyn.

Ready for Hillary officials also stress their expanding grassroots support, saying the national network they are developing will prime volunteers and organizers to help Clinton if she decides to run.
