Trump to attend fundraiser for midterm candidates

Associated Press/Evan Vucci

Former President Trump is set to attend a fundraiser next month to boost some of his endorsed midterm candidates as he ramps up his involvement in the 2022 elections. 

Make America Great Again, Again!, the nation’s top pro-Trump super PAC, is hosting a candidate forum and fundraiser at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida on Feb. 23, according to an invitation to the event that was obtained by The Hill. The event will feature both Trump and a “select group” of 2022 candidates he’s endorsed.

Among the other high-profile Republicans attending are the super PAC’s chairwoman, Pam Bondi; national finance chair, Kimberly Guilfoyle; and board members Matt Whitaker and Ric Grenell.

It was not immediately clear which candidates would be in attendance, though the invitation said a list of names would be “distributed soon.”

Tickets to the dinner portion of the fundraiser will be $3,000 per person or $5,000 per couple, but those who donate $125,000 will be able to attend all of the day’s events “plus a photo and a private dinner with President Trump.”

The fundraiser was first reported by Politico.

The news comes as Trump and his allies ramp up their activities to also include policy summits and campaign rallies throughout 2022. Trump’s PACs have also garnered over $100 million, forecasting heavy involvement by the former president in the midterms.

Trump has already endorsed several candidates in the midterms, including challengers to House and Senate incumbents who backed his impeachment after the Jan. 6 riot on Capitol Hill.
