The Lincoln Project, a Republican super PAC critical of President TrumpDonald TrumpFive takeaways from the Ohio special primaries Missouri Rep.

Reed Galen, a member of the Lincoln Project’s advisory committee told CNBC the group raised $1 million in a day after Trump’s tweets, which took aim at the group over its anti-Trump ad titled “Mourning in America.”  

“A group of RINO [Republicans In Name Only] Republicans who failed badly 12 years ago, then again 8 years ago, and then got BADLY beaten by me, a political first timer, 4 years ago, have copied (no imagination) the concept of an ad from Ronald Reagan, ‘Morning in America,'” Trump tweeted early Tuesday.

Galen told CNBC the ad in question has continued airing on cable markets in the Washington, D.C., region since Tuesday and that it will begin airing in swing states next week.

The group also announced Wednesday that it will run ads against some of Trump’s top allies in the Senate.

"Thanks to Trump, we'll keep 'Mourning in America' running longer, then get back to our regular programming, which will include more assaults on Trump's record and going after some of his most ardent enablers in the Senate,” John Weaver, another co-founder of the group, told Newsweek. He did not specify which senator or senators the ads would target.
