Trump's cash plea could complicate GOP fundraising efforts

 

John Raoux, Associated Press

In this Feb. 28, 2021, former President Donald Trump speaks at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Fla. Trump called on his supporters to send their contributions directly to his own committees in his first speech since leaving office. That call puts Trump at odds with the Republican Party's existing political organizations, including the Republican National Committee and the party's congressional campaign arms.

ORLANDO, Fla. - "Trump needs you," one fundraising email implored.

"President Trump's Legacy is in your hands," another pleaded.

Others advertised "Miss Me Yet?" T-shirts featuring Donald Trump's smiling face.

While some Republicans grapple with how fiercely to embrace the former president, the organizations charged with raising money for the party are going all in. The Republican National Committee and the party's congressional campaign arms are eager to cash in on Trump's lure with small donors ahead of next year's midterm elections, when the GOP hopes to regain control of at least one chamber of Congress.
