The MAGA Inc. super political action committee (PAC), dedicated to supporting the 2024 bid of former President Donald Trump, is making waves in the political fundraising game. In the second half of 2023, this powerhouse PAC managed to pull in over $46 million! That’s enough money to buy a couple of private islands or maybe even hire a personal chef to make Trump’s hair look less wild.
These fundraising numbers are seriously impressive, especially considering that MAGA Inc. brought in even more money in just six months than it did in the entire previous year. Talk about a fundraising machine! They received a whopping $13 million in total contributions, with over a dozen seven-figure donations. Thank you, wealthy donors, for keeping Trump’s dreams alive and well-funded.
Trump-Aligned Super PAC Brings In Massive Fundraising Haul In Second Half Of 2023https://t.co/mbmCF6KRpq

Timothy Mellon, a wealthy businessman with pockets as deep as the Mariana Trench, generously contributed $10 million to MAGA Inc. Linda McMahon, the founder of WWE and former Small Business Administration leader under Trump, wasn’t far behind with a donation of $5.25 million. It’s as if these donors are playing a game of one-upmanship to see who can impress Trump the most. Well, folks, it looks like they’re all winners in his book.
But the generosity doesn’t stop there! Diane Hendricks, the cofounder of ABC Supply, and Timothy Dunn, CEO of Crownquest, both contributed a cool $5 million to MAGA Inc. You know you’re in good company when you’re receiving millions from people who could buy a small country without batting an eyelash.
Interestingly enough, MAGA Inc. decided to do some financial spring cleaning and refunded $12.5 million to Trump’s leadership PAC, Save America. The money went towards paying for Trump’s legal fees as he faces not one, not two, but four criminal indictments. Wait, what!? Criminal indictments? Maybe Trump should start a new reality TV show called “The Apprentice… of the Courthouse.” Just a thought.
Now, let’s talk about Trump’s competition. Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley may have just lost the New Hampshire primary to Trump by nearly 11 points, but don’t count her out just yet. Her campaign announced that she raised an impressive $24 million in the fourth quarter of 2023. While that’s no small amount, it’s still a long way from Trump’s fundraising prowess.
Trump also won the Iowa caucus with a solid 51% of the support. He left Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and conservative businessman Vivek Ramaswamy in the dust with 21.2% and 7.7% respectively. It seems like Trump’s supporters are as loyal as ever, while his competitors are dropping like flies and throwing their support behind him. Can you blame them? It’s hard to resist the allure of that iconic orange mane.
Looking ahead, it seems Trump is on track to win the next early nominating state, Nevada. He’s the only major candidate participating in the party-run caucus, which means he’ll be taking home all the delegates. Haley, on the other hand, will have to duke it out on the state’s primary ballot a couple of days earlier. Will she be able to gain some ground or will Trump continue his winning streak? Only time will tell.
Lastly, let’s not forget about Trump’s stronghold in his home state of South Carolina. RealClearPolitics shows that Trump has an impressive 30-point lead over Haley in the polls. It looks like Trump has South Carolina wrapped around his little finger, although I’m sure he’d prefer if it were gold-plated.
In conclusion, MAGA Inc. is paving the way as the leading super PAC supporting Trump’s 2024 bid. With a haul of $46 million and counting, they’re ready to kick some serious fundraising butt. Trump’s competitors may be scrambling to keep up, but as long as his supporters keep opening their checkbooks, there’s no doubt that he’ll continue to dominate. Let the campaign trail spectacle continue!
