Anne tells me a billionaire is going to put up $10M to defeat Bush in 2004.

Soros, who in the past has donated on a smaller scale to Democratic candidates and the party, pledged the money to a political action committee called America Coming Together, spokesman Michael Vachon said Friday.

The group plans a $75 million effort to defeat Bush and “elect progressive officials at every level in 2004,” targeting 17 key states: Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Iowa, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

Interesting. Anyone ever heard of them? (Ooops! I didn’t realize Anne put this on her blog too. Double post?)
