DC: Three George Soros-backed district attorney candidates lost in California’s Sacramento, San Diego, and Alameda counties after Tuesday’s midterm elections.
Soros and several donors, such as the American Civil Liberties Union, put millions of dollars into four California district attorney races in hopes of electing criminal justice reform-minded judges.
The judges running against Soros’s candidates won by comfortable margins. Conservative Sacramento incumbent Anne Marie Schubert won, getting 64 percent of the vote in Sacramento. Incumbent Republican Summer Stephan in San Diego County received roughly two thirds of her district’s votes. Alameda County incumbent District Attorney Nancy O’Malley also won her race at 60 percent.
