Liberal donors eye new long-term investments in states and new voters to boost Democrats

The Washington Post reports:
A group of wealthy liberal donors who helped bankroll the Center for American Progress and other major advocacy groups on the left is developing a new big-money strategy that could boost state-level Democratic candidates and mobilize core party voters.

The plan, being crafted in private by a group of about 100 donors that includes billionaire hedge fund manager George Soros and San Francisco venture capitalist Rob McKay, seeks to give Democrats a stronger hand in the redrawing of district lines for state legislatures and the U.S. House.
No word yet on when the liberal billionaires will blame the Koch brothers for forcing them to spend money on politics.
