Report: GOP Leaders Urging Trump to Spend More on Senate Races

Published on

Republican leaders in Congress want former President Donald Trump to spend more of his Save America PAC’s around $99 million in cash on GOP Senate races, Politico reported Friday.

According to the report, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, (R-KY is privately urging the former president to spend some of the reported $99 million in donations his PAC has taken in to bolster Republican Senate candidates who are underfunded in key states.

“A lot of Trump candidates need help, like Blake Masters,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told Politico. “My argument would be: ‘If the people you endorsed do well, you do well.'”

Trump insiders told the news outlet that he has no obligation to fund the Senate races even as Democrats are raising more money than the GOP is, according to Newsmax.

“It’s not Trump’s job to elect a Senate majority,” one Trump adviser told Politico.

While Trump may not be spending heavily on these races, including for candidates he endorsed, he is appearing at rallies for them and putting his clout behind the contests.

“President Trump has been completely invested in seeing his endorsed candidates win, which has already fueled his 98% win record so far this cycle,” Trump spokesperson Taylor Budowich said. “Through the power of his endorsement and his massive MAGA rallies, President Trump is able to infuse campaigns with media attention, volunteers and donors in a way that has never been seen before in American politics.”

According to OpenSecrets.org, the Trump PAC had $99,127,576 on hand in cash as of July 31.
