WASHINGTON — Former President Donald Trump is sitting on more than $110 million in campaign cash at a time when his party is trying to win control of Congress — and it's starting to irk some in the GOP. They are watching him rake in money from persistent email solicitations to the party's small-donor base and at VIP receptions connected to a full schedule of campaign-style rallies. And they see a man stockpiling a war chest for another presidential run instead of using his prowess to boost the party. Through his "Save America" super PAC in support of Republicans, Trump doled out just $205,000 to 41 federal candidates through Feb. 28, the last date covered by his most recent campaign finance disclosure. The vast majority of that money has gone to Republicans running in safe seats, or against incumbents he detests, rather than competitive races likely to help determine which party wins the House and Senate in November's midterms. In the weeks since the latest disclosure, Trump has endorsed a handful of additional candidates who are battling for swing seats. His endorsement typically comes with a check for $5,000 — the maximum direct contribution the super PAC can make. Republican campaign veterans and Trump insiders say they are disappointed but not surprised by what they describe as a combination of stinginess and selfishness by the former president. One former Trump campaign official said there was no way Trump would "spend any money on these people in midterms," adding that the former president was raising money for himself. "He does not share well when it comes to money," this person said in an interview, speaking on the condition of anonymity so as to not incur backlash from the former president and those in his orbit. Though current fundamentals show the GOP on the verge of significant gains this fall, some Republicans worry the party could leave House and Senate seats on the table if Trump doesn’t dig deeper into his war chest to help battleground candidates in the coming months. "It pisses me off," said Dan Eberhart, a GOP donor based in Arizona, who noted that Trump isn't even making more than a perfunctory direct contribution to help the allies who have secured his endorsement, much less the candidates the party will rely on to try to win majorities. "It’s pretty selfish." A Trump representative did not respond to a request for comment from NBC News. Then-President Donald Trump at CPAC 2019 in National Harbor, Md.

In addition to the federal candidates, "Save America" has spread $145,500 to 29 hopefuls at the state level. In some cases, candidates blessed by Trump have struggled to raise money on their own. In Wyoming, where Trump endorsed Harriet Hageman in her GOP primary bid against Rep. Liz Cheney, Hageman raised less than $750,000 through the end of 2021. Cheney, who drew Trump’s ire by voting to impeach him over the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol and by joining the House panel investigating the riot, raised $7.2 million last year and had $4.7 million in the bank when the reporting period closed Dec. 31. In South Carolina’s 1st Congressional District, Rep. Nancy Mace, R-S.C., drew Trump's ire by criticizing him over Jan. 6 — even though she didn’t vote to impeach him. Mace collected $3 million and had $1.5 million left at the end of last year. She’s facing two primary opponents, one of whom — Katie Arrington — has had trouble gaining traction despite a full-throated endorsement from Trump. In the 72 battleground districts identified by the National Republican Congressional Committee last week, Trump had donated to only two candidates: Ryan Zinke in Montana and Derrick Van Orden in Wisconsin. In one instance, because Florida hasn’t finished redrawing its congressional lines for the midterms, it remains to be seen whether Anna Paulina Luna, a Trump-endorsed and -funded candidate, will find herself in one of the NRCC’s battlegrounds. The next report, due April 20, is likely to show that Trump made donations in at least a handful more of these dis . . . read the full article here.
