Trump super PAC to hold first fundraiser at Bedminster


A pro-Donald Trump super PAC is holding its first fundraising event on May 22 at the former president’s Bedminster golf club, according to two people familiar with the planning.

The event will benefit Make America Great Again Action, a super PAC spearheaded by former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. Trump is expected to attend the event, which will include reception and a dinner. The minimum price for entry is $250,000.

Trump tapped Lewandowki earlier this year to oversee the super PAC as part of his post-White House political operation. It’s the second big money group Trump has formed. Shortly after the election, he launched Save America PAC, a leadership PAC that has raised tens of millions of dollars.

The groups could both be used to boost favored candidates in upcoming elections, and Save America has already conducted polling on a 2022 primary of particular interest to Trump: the Wyoming contest featuring GOP Rep. Liz Cheney, the best-known of the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump in January.

The event will be the first fundraiser at Bedminister since Trump left the White House. The former president is expected to spend the summer season at the golf club instead of his Mar-a-Lago estate in South Florida.
