Mega-wealthy, far-left attorney Steve Phillips, through his political action committee PowerPAC+, is throwing huge sums of money and resources “under the radar” to back Democratic candidate Mike Espy in the tight Mississippi U.S. Senate race that will be decided on Nov. 27.
While Espy paints himself as a relatively moderate Democrat, Phillips — who is based in San Francisco — is intent on winning another Senate seat, both to counter President Donald Trump and to help re-build a permanent Democratic Party majority, based on his strategy laid out in his Obama-endorsed 2016 book: “Brown Is the New White.”
Phillips was heavily involved in Democrat Doug Jones’ shock win against Roy Moore in last year’s Alabama Senate race. He was also the mastermind behind Stacey Abrams’ and Andrew Gillum’s near-victories in the recently resolved Georgia and Florida gubernatorial contests.
