Republican Crushes George Soros-Backed Challenger Shani Curry Mitchell
Sandra Doorley mocks globaist in victory speech
The incumbent Monroe County New York district attorney running as a Republican, Sandra Doorley, annihilated her George Soros-backed challenger Shani Curry Mitchell on Tuesday night.
Globalist and Democratic megadonor Soros dropped more than $800,000 against Doorley via one of his political action committees (PACs) in October.
Spectrum News reported:
“State BOE (Board of Elections) records show the New York Justice & Public Safety PAC responsible for more than $800,000 worth of television and digital advertisements opposing incumbent Republican DA Sandra Doorley or supporting her challenger Shani Curry Mitchell.
"Soros is listed as the sole donor for what’s technically classified as an Independent Expenditure Committee in New York."
Local radio host Bob Lonsberry gave some perspective on the massive cash influx weeks before the race:
“If you took all the money Democratic Monroe County executive candidate Adam Bello has spent on his campaign, and added all the money Republican incumbent Cheryl DiNolfo has spent, and added in Bello’s money again, you’d have just about as much money as George Soros has spent trying to get Shani Curry Mitchell elected district attorney,” Lonsberry said.
But despite the funding, Doorley pulled out a big win over Mitchell.
Even USA Today reporter Jon Campbell described Soros' money as a complete backfire.
Campbell wrote via Twitter:
“The $800K of Soros-funded ads appear to have backfired in the Monroe County DA race.“
"Incumbent Sandra Doorley, a Republican, is cruising with more than half of precincts reporting … and I mean REALLY backfired. Compare the early DA results to the Monroe County exec race, where the Democrat (Adam Bello) has a very slim lead.”
Doorley trolled Soros by thanking him for her win in her speech.
“The Republican Party in Monroe Country is not dead, and we are alive and well,” said the DA.

“And look at all the great people, here. We still have the energy, and we will be back. And I am back for another four more years, so, thank you, George Soros!”
Doorley noted Soros’ influence before the election before filing a formal complaint to the New York State Board of Elections in October, alleging “illegal coordination” between Mitchell and Soros’ PAC.
Even though Mitchell claimed she did not pay for nor approve of the ads, Monroe GOP Chairman Bill Napier published a screenshot of the Democrat’s campaign manager Rynn Reed’s LinkedIn profile, “indicating she had worked as a public affairs intern for NYC-based public relations firm Berlin Rosen immediately prior to joining the campaign,” according to the outlet.
“George Soros doesn’t know a damn thing about me,” Doorley said, according to The New York Times.
“His New York PAC doesn’t know a damn thing about me.”
In August, Neon Nettle reported Soros set up a 2020 election campaign super PAC for Democrats and has seeded the fund with $5.1 million, according to Federal Election Commission filings.
The billionaire planned to use the Democracy PAC to distribute money to other organizations and won't follow other billionaires in creating his own political group.
”He has, unlike Tom Steyer or [Michael] Bloomberg, funded things like Senate Majority PAC and Priorities USA and EMILY’s List and Planned Parenthood and expects to continue to do so,” an inside source reportedly told Politico.
