Democrats have so far raised more funds than Republicans as the election campaign stretches into the final legs, according to AP. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has asked GOP candidates to request Trump for financial support for their races.
“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,” said Taylor Budowich, who will serve as the group’s executive director, according to Politico.
Tony Fabrizio, who worked on Trump’s 2016 and 2020 campaigns, is expected to oversee polling at MAGA Inc. Chris LaCivita, who ran a pro-Trump super PAC during the 2020 presidential election, will act as the chief strategist. Meredith O’Rourke will run the finance team.... (Read more)
