Trump fundraising operation under fire after 'abysmal' spending in key races

Former President Donald Trump is facing backlash from top donors angered he failed to spend more to help secure Republican majorities in Congress after wading into key races with endorsements and raking in mountains of cash.

Wealthy political donors who helped fuel Trump’s fundraising operation expected the former president to juice the Republican candidates he fielded during the general election. Instead, millions of dollars are still sitting in Trump’s coffers, according to federal election records.

A Republican said Trump was on the receiving end of “extraordinarily severe” phone calls from donors incensed by how their contributions were handled. Trump’s response has been to apportion blame on those around him, including the aides charged with overseeing the operation.

The former president’s fundraising apparatus amassed mountains of cash ahead of the general election, spending only a fraction of the more than $130 million it collected, according to federal data compiled by OpenSecrets.

I'm sorry, does Mitch McConnell not control the Senate purse strings? Did he not pull money from candidates to give to his Democrat endorsing cronies?

How high should we jump this time?

It’s not journalism if the source is anonymous. The correct term is propaganda or agitprop (“lie” works, too).

The painful irony is Trump might use the same funds for a 3rd party run, if he is denied the nomination.

That’s what I’m thinking.
I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

OK, I'm gonna make a prediction in response to the one you've made above.

If Mr. Trump does run as a 3rd-party candidate, the candidate of "The Republican Party" will finish in THIRD PLACE in the general election.

And what happens to the "Republicans" after that...?

Donald Trump is a private citizen. He spent $4 million helping Blake Masters in the AZ Senate race

Mitch McConell, the Senate Slumlord, spent $0

Tell me again how Trump is the problem

I'm thinking that he may announce a 3rd party run anyways ... his statement was that his announcement tonoight was going to change history.
Romans 12:16-21

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
