When billionaire Michael Bloomberg announced he would sink $100 million into helping Democrats capture Florida, he briefly did what had been viewed as impossible: He took the focus of the right’s wrath off George Soros.

Mr. Soros has long been viewed as the embodiment of the left-wing megabucks donor, but as Mr. Bloomberg’s donation showed, he isn’t the only big-spending progressive in town, said Scott Walter, president of the conservative Capital Research Center.

“George Soros is certainly one of the most influential powerful men on the planet — an absolute pillar of the left in all things nonprofit and political,” Mr. Walter said. “However, people need to understand that the left has multiple Soroses.”

In terms of individual contributions to federal campaigns, neither Mr. Bloomberg nor Mr. Soros leads the pack in 2020. That distinction belongs to San Francisco billionaire Tom Steyer, who so far has sunk $54 million into Democratic candidates and committees, according to Open Secrets, a project of the Center for Responsive Politics.

In fact, Mr. Soros only ranks 24th among Democrat and Republican donors, with $8 million in contributions during the 2020 election cycle. That list, however, only considers one source of campaign funding.
