Trump PAC has ‘gargantuan’ amount of money, gearing up for 2022, 2024
Former President Donald Trump’s leadership, PAC “Save America,” will head into the second quarter of 2021 with what those in the know are calling a “Gargantuan” sum of money at hand.
Because PAC files its disclosures semi-annually, official figures will not be public until the summer, but cash available to Save America PAC is said to be $ 85 million.
Such a sum – which is sure to only increase – will give Trump the ability to have a serious impact on the 2022 midterm election as Republicans attempt to regain control of the House and Trump seeks to reshape the GOP.
Trump is expected to speak at the RNC’s donors’ retreat in Palm Beach this weekend, but some Rs fear his group may hamper the party’s overall fundraising efforts.

GOP concerned about Trump could hurt their fundraising efforts
Although there is some disagreement within the Republican Party on how much to align with the former president, the Republican National Committee and the Congressional campaign arms don’t care if at least some association with Trump brings donations.
The problem is, Trump has encouraged his supporters to donate directly to him and bypass the Republican groups that have traditionally raised funds.

Longtime Republican donor Dan Eberhart said, “Trump’s call to donate directly shows that normal party bodies … are going to have to fight to be relevant in the 2022 cycle.”
New Jersey RNC member Bill Palatucci said Trump’s comments to CPAC were “unwelcome” and “counterproductive.”
He also said he was concerned the Republicans would lose more races like the Georgia Senate second-round races if they don’t work together.
