Donald Trump will be going into coming elections with a war chest worth $85 million. The former president’s Save America PAC alone is worth that much, suggesting Trump will continue to exert a substantial pull over Republican politics, CNBC noted.

A source familiar with the matter said that the PAC had made substantial gains since 2020, which ended with $31 million saved, according to federal filings. 

Various other PACs that support Trump could add to that number, such as the Trump Make America Great Again Committee.

The 2022 midterm elections will be vital for conservatives, who are desperate to disrupt unified Democratic control of the government. Trump is expected to weigh in but could prove a wild card after breaking with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

The formerly loyal senator from Kentucky did not fully back Trump following the Jan. 6 riots, locking the GOP into a civil war between establishment politicians and Trump’s alt-right. Trump has vowed those who criticize him will face populist challengers in their primaries. 

“He will never do what needs to be done, or what is right for our country,” Trump said of McConnell in February. “Where necessary and appropriate, I will back primary rivals who espouse making America great again and our policy of America first.”

Trump, 74, has also declined to say whether he’ll run for president again in 2024, a move sure to plunge his party further into intersectional conflict.

In a Fox News interview with his daughter-in-law Lara Trump, Trump seemed to hint that he would run again. 

He’s not waiting for the election to come around, though. Trump has spoken out on Georgia’s voting rights controversy, calling for boycotts against companies that leave the state over its suppression policies.

“It is finally time for Republicans and conservatives to fight back—we have more people than they do—by far! Boycott Major League Baseball, Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, JPMorgan Chase, ViacomCBS, Citigroup, Cisco, UPS, and Merck,” Trump said.
