by Elizabeth Ruiz

Political contributions from a left-wing billionaire to the campaign of a Bexar County candidate for district attorney are nearing $1 million.

The San Antonio Express News reports that George Soros, through his Texas Justice and Safety political action committee, has donated about 958-thousand-dollars to Joe Gonzales.

Gonzales is challenging District Attorney Nico LaHood in the Democratic Primary.

The winner in the Democratic Primary will face Republican Tylden Shaeffer in November. Shaeffer is unopposed in the Republican Primary.

Early voting in Tuesday’s Primary elections continues through Friday.
