More money for the Republican party.
Politico reported some of President Donald Trump’s advisers launched MAGA Inc., a new super PAC, to help Republicans in the midterms.
The news excited the Republican party since Democrats have outraised them.
Trump spokesman Taylor Budowich said: “President Trump is committed to saving America, and Make America Great Again, Inc. will ensure that is achieved at the ballot box in November and beyond.”
MAGA, Inc. will be overseen by Budowich, who’s been serving as the former president’s communications director and was previously a senior adviser on his 2020 reelection campaign. Chris LaCivita, a veteran Republican operative who in 2020 ran the biggest-spending pro-Trump super PAC, will be the vehicle’s chief strategist. Tony Fabrizio, a longtime Trump pollster who worked on his 2016 and 2020 campaigns, will oversee polling.
Running the finance team will be veteran GOP fundraiser Meredith O’Rourke, who has worked for Trump. The communications department will be staffed by Steven Cheung, who worked on Trump’s 2016 and 2020 campaigns and worked in his administration, and Alex Pfeiffer, a conservative media strategist and former producer for Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
Sergio Gor, the publisher of Trump’s post-presidential book “A Journey Together,” will be a senior adviser.
Trump’s former leadership PAC Save America “has around a $100 million cash reserve.” They can transfer the money to MAGA, Inc. Other super PACs can as well:
MAGA, Inc. will effectively merge with the existing pro-Trump super PAC, MAGA Again!, which is run by former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi. MAGA, Again! has had a relatively low profile throughout the midterms and has struggled to make an impact in races, though a person familiar with the group said it recently held a fundraiser at Trump’s Bedminster, N.J. golf club that raised $1 million. Like Save America, MAGA, Again! can funnel its remaining funds to MAGA, Inc.
The statistics show incumbents and those in open races endorsed by Trump have done well in primaries. Only 4 out of 10 challengers won their primaries.

Could the new super PAC be a leadup to Trump 2024? He hasn’t confirmed or denied a 2024 run.
The power of his endorsements is impressive and could provide more ammo to run in 2024.
Giving the Republican party millions of dollars could lure them onto his side for a 2024 bid. The Democrats have raised a lot more money than the Republicans. Imagine if his endorsements and money give the GOP the House and Senate.DONATE
