A group of current and former aides to former President Trump is launching a new super PAC that could boost Trump-approved candidates in the meantime and potentially lay the groundwork for a 2024 campaign if the former president chooses to run.
The former president’s allies will lead the new super PAC called Make America Great Again Inc., or MAGA Inc. The group filed a lawsuit with the Federal Election Commission on Friday. It will make the existing Make America Great Again, Again! Inc., which had about $10 million on hand at the end of August.
The new super-PAC could give Trump-backed Republicans a boost in the upcoming midterm elections that have been outraged by their Democratic opponents. Trump, whose Save America PAC has nearly $100 million in the bank, has so far largely refused to provide financial aid to GOP candidates ahead of the November vote.
Some in the GOP had been looking to Trump to pump money into tight Senate races in Ohio, Arizona and Pennsylvania, where his favorite candidates won their primaries but are now in tight-knit contests that could decide control of the chamber.
Politico, which first reported on the formation of the new super PAC, said the new group will be led by Taylor Budowich, who has served as Trump’s spokesperson since his departure. Other former Trump officials involved in the effort include Tony Fabrizio, a longtime Trump pollster, former campaign adviser Sergio Gor and former campaign aide Steven Cheung.
“President Trump is committed to saving America, and Make America Great Again, Inc. will ensure this is achieved at the polls in November and beyond,” Budowich said in a statement.
The group could also have the added benefit of funding Trump’s bid for the White House if he seeks a new term in 2024. The figures involved in the super PAC of MAGA Inc. the presidential race after the midterms.
