Former President Donald Trump dug into his $92 million war chest, the largest in the Republican Party, and sent $20 million in October to an allied super PAC that’s supporting Senate candidates he’s endorsed, according to Federal Election Commission filings.

Trump’s leadership PAC, Save America, donated the money to Make America Great Again Inc., which raised $32.1 million in the first 19 days of October. Make America Great Again also received $8.9 million from a dormant super PAC set up by Trump allies in 2021 and $1.5 million from conservative donor Timothy Mellon.
