New Super PAC Expected to Spend Big on Trump-Endorsed Candidates (Newsmax)

A new super PAC, sanctioned by former President Donald Trump, is expected to pour money into the campaigns of his endorsed candidates in the midterms, Politico is reporting.
The group, MAGA, Inc., will be overseen Taylor Budowich, who has been working as Trump's communication director. Chris LaCivita, a veteran Republican operative, will be the group's chief strategist. Heading up the finance team will be longtime GOP fundraiser Meredith O'Rourke, who has worked for Trump, Politico noted.
Some of those close to Trump speculated the new super PAC could become a campaign apparatus for the former president if he decides to run for president in 2024.
"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 Budowich.
Those who are involved in the new group would not say how much will be spent on the midterms and which candidates will get the funding.
Trump's leadership PAC, Save America, is one of the best-funded groups in politics, according the Politico. The news outlet said the group's cash reserve stands at $100 million. Money from Save America can be transferred to the new super PAC, which can spend it freely.
Meanwhile, opinions on Trump remained stable through the summer, and he has continued to play a major role in the midterm election decisions, with 44% viewing him favorably and 53% unfavorably, the most recent New York Times/Siena College poll shows.
