Globalist George Soros scored two wins in Virginia this week when two prosecutor candidates he backed ejected incumbents in local Democratic primaries. 

Soros had poured almost a million dollars into the candidates' campaigns.

Soros, who is infamous for backing liberal left-wing causes across the globe, used his Justice and Public Safety PAC to promote two progressive candidates against incumbent Democrats.

Parisa Dehghani-Tafti was backed to Arlington County Commonwealth's Attorney Theo Stamos and supported former Justice Department employee Steve Descano in his race against Fairfax County Commonwealth’s Attorney Raymond Morrogh.

According to finance reports:

Dehghani-Tafti received $583,000

Descano received $392,000 just from that PAC.

But meanwhile, Stamos and Morrogh raised $162,000 and $242,000 for their entire campaigns.

According to Fox News: The money gave Tafti and Descano a notable financial advantage over the incumbents, despite their shortage of experience.

The Washington Post reported that while the two challengers have never prosecuted a case in a state court, they beat candidates with more than 60 years of experience between them.

Both were also boosted by Democratic former Gov. Terry McAuliffe, who declared Stamos and Morrogh pushed back against his effort to restore voting rights of convicted felons after they serve their time.

But supporters of the incumbents said the role that money played was significant.

“We were outspent 3 to 1. Our candidate was in the hospital for nearly a week,” Ben Tribbett, a campaign consultant for Morrogh, told the Post.

“This is an election that was bought, not won. We are proud of what we did.”

“I think it is foreboding for local elections because we’re going to have people clamoring to get money from George Soros -- that’s what I fear greatly,” Karen Darner said.

Both winning candidates have eyed a progressive approach to matters linked to criminal justice reform, and both have vowed not to prosecute marijuana possession cases.

Virginia is one of four states to hold legislative elections this year and is seen as a bellwether for future national elections.

The Washington Free Beacon notes that Soros has backed attorney and prosecutor candidates in states including California, Florida, Illinois, Mississippi, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, Texas, and New Mexico.

His preferred candidates have, for the most part, won their races.

In 2017, he pumped nearly $1.5 million into the Philadelphia Justice and Public Safety PAC, which supported candidate Larry Krasner in the Democratic primary for a Pennsylvania district attorney election.

Krasner won by a wide margin.
