CNN, which first detailed the contributions, reported Friday that McCarthy and his allies have also reached out to Trump and his advisers to urge that the former president not get involved in the 2022 midterm primaries for Valadao and Katko.

The Hill has reached out to McCarthy’s office and Trump's team for comment.

Trump has recently endorsed GOP challengers to Upton and Herrera Beutler.

Republicans would have to net at least six seats to win back the House next year.
