At a glance

  • Former President Trump has raised $161 million for midterm campaigns, but his Make America Great Again super PAC has spent a paltry $14.8 million in Senate races.
  • By contrast, the super PAC overseen by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell – a favorite Trump whipping boy – has funneled $238 million into Senate races to back Trump-endorsed candidates.
  • One example: Ohio Republican J.D. Vance was short on cash, but got just $2.3 million from Trump – compared to $32 million from McConnell.
