Close advisers to former President Donald Trump are launching MAGA Inc., a new independent political action committee (PAC) that will spend millions to fund Trump-backed candidates ahead of the 2022 midterm elections, Politico reported Friday.

“President Trump is committed to saving America, and Make America Great Again, Inc. will ensure that it is achieved at the ballot box in November and beyond,” Taylor Budowich, a Trump spokesman, told Politico.
Although Trump has endorsed more than 200 candidates, his current super PAC, MAGA Again!, has spent very little of its more than $100 million in funding and has had little impact so far on the midterm races, reported the middle. Super PACs like MAGA Inc. can raise unlimited amounts of money from corporations and individuals, but are not allowed to contribute or coordinate directly with parties or candidates. according to to the Federal Election Committee.
MAGA Inc., which will be managed by Budowich, will probably merge with MAGA Again! that he could transfer his funds to the new committee. Trump remains the GOP’s biggest fundraiser and has been able to get large amounts of donations small and large. according to to FoxNews.
The committee could also be used to provide a framework for Trump’s possible run for president in 2024, according to Politico. Although Trump has hinted that he might run for president again, he is still deciding whether he will announce his campaign before or after the midterms, the outlet reported.
A Trump spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.
