(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- One of the primary criticisms of former President Donald Trump’s political action committee has been that the committee, established to help Republicans retake Congress in the 2022 Midterm Elections, has failed to spend much of the over $100 million it has raked in to help Republicans retake Congress in the midterms. And Texas Senator Ted Cruz is among the latest Republicans to call Trump out for it.
In a recent broadcast of his podcast “The Verdict,” Cruz said the former president should be coughing up some of that $100 million donated to Save America PAC to target the races that lost funding from Mitch McConnell’s Senate Leadership Fund.
Cruz said if McConnell is only going to spend money on moderate or anti-Trump candidates, “it would be nice if Trump would spend some of that $100 million” to promote the pro-Trump candidates McConnell “is abandoning,” like the Senate campaigns of Blake Masters in Arizona or Don Bolduc in New Hampshire
While Save America PAC has not spent any money supporting Masters or Bolduc, Trump’s other PAC, MAGA, Inc., has spent about $1.8 million on Masters.
MAGA, Inc. has also spent a little bit of money promoting Trump-endorsed Pennsylvania Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz ($135,650 for an ad buy in Pittsburgh) and Ohio Senate candidate J.D. Vance ($276,000 on ad buys in Columbus and Cleveland).
In September, McConnell’s Senate Leadership Fund canceled almost $10 million in campaign ad buys for Blake Masters. In October, the PAC canceled another $8 million in campaign ads for Masters.
It was reported in late September that Trump’s Save America PAC advanced $3 million to the former president’s lawyer to cover the cost of Trump’s legal fees in the ongoing DOJ investigation into Trump’s handling of government documents.
During his podcast, Senator Cruz warned the races Republicans lose will be the ones that have become “a pissing match between the Republican candidate and Trump,” calling it a “self-inflicted wound.” He said he wished Trump would spend some of his money supporting these candidates, adding “he’s spending almost none of it.”
