Liberal megadonors plan $100 million swing-state blitz to beat Trump

(Worthy News) - The country’s most powerful liberal donor club is reshaping its spending on the 2020 elections, playing down longtime relationships with groups in Washington and instead preparing to pour $100 million into key states to help defeat President Donald Trump.

The group, the Democracy Alliance, wants to fund everything from programs combating social media disinformation to candidate training sessions leading up to the elections and the next round of redistricting, according to a new three-year spending plan described to donors during a recent members-only meeting at the Four Seasons Hotel in Austin, Texas.

It’s a significant shift for the group, whose members pumped $600 million into various causes on the left in 2017 and 2018. The Democracy Alliance has long been a major funder of left-leaning Washington-based institutions like the Center for American Progress think tank and the national media watchdog Media Matters. But while individual Democracy Alliance members may continue financing those groups, the groups are no longer a central focus for the donor club, whose members pledge to give at least $200,000 a year to groups on a list of approved organizations.
