Trump's MAGA, Inc. SuperPAC has filed its first $4.81M of independent expenditures with the FEC:

#OHSen $1,393,168
#AZSen $1,100,052
#GASen $916,043
#PASen $787,754
#NVSen $615,115…… ImageImageImage
Trump's MAGA, Inc adding another $3.8 million in ad reservations spread across several states, bringing its general election spend to $8.6 million.
Adding this to last week's tracking and its FEC filings, Trump's MAGA, Inc. spending should now be at a bit over $11 million distributed across five races.

#AZSen $2.83M
#OHSen $2.39M
#PASen $2.36M
#NVSen $1.85M
#GASen $1.8M

Oops...I missed the MAGA, Inc. FEC filing that came on the 20th when it got lost among the flood of monthly FEC reports that day.

The buy clocked in at $3.7M, or about $100K less than AdImpact's initial estimate.

w/yesterday's addition, MAGA, Inc. spending at ~$11.1 million. ImageImageImage

The RNC's November haul was boosted by $850,000 from the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which itself isn't looking at all well lately.

November ending cash:

2018 $13,720,520

2020 $36,831,080
2021 $30,087,674

The NRCC appears to be the only one of the three national Republican party committees that isn't completely destitute, but there's still ample time for the saboteur caucus to wrest the controls away so they can safely steer the plane into the mountain. Image

FEC filings from EMILY's List record Laphonza Butler's residence as Silver Springs, Maryland as recently as 31 days ago.
FPPC and FEC filings indicate that soon-to-be California Senator Laphonza Butler hasn't been a resident of the state for over two years. Image

A caveat to this story about Trump's Save America, the leadership PAC shouldering the brunt of his legal bills, being largely broke.

(Short answer--it's complicated).…
Save America had $100M in cash (mostly raised in the 'Stop the Steal' aftermath) for most of 2022.

In October, it sent $60 million to MAGA, Inc., the SuperPAC that was supposed to help US Senate candidates and (later) support Trump in the GOP primary. Image
MAGA, Inc. spent around $15M on the 2022 US Senate races, then burned another $20M+ attacking Ron DeSantis, most of it in the runup to his campaign launch. Image

Today's first Trump PAC filing is in...the dormant Trump MAGA Cmte, which served as the small-dollar joint fundraising committee in 2016 and 2020, spent $202.8K on operating expenditures, sent $1.02M to the Save America leadership PAC paying his legal bills, and has $3.29M left.
Another Trump committee reporting in...the dormant Trump Victory, which was the large-dollar joint fundraising committee in 2016 and 2020, sent $509K to the Make America Great Again PAC (what was formerly his 2016/2020 campaign committee) and ended with $1.3 million on hand.
Now the big Trump committees are coming in. The Save America leadership PAC brought in $15.5 million in the first 6 months of the year, burned $24.3 million on operating expenditures (mostly legal fees), and sent $5.9M to Trump's MAGA PAC, ending with $3.65 million on hand.

Trump world attempting to get out ahead of the story that Trump's Save America leadership PAC burned $40.2 million on his legal fees in the first six months of the year.…

For those keeping track, that's $40.2 million spent on legal fees out of the $53.8 million Trump's committees raised in the first half of the year, or roughly three out of every four dollars raised under a variety of false pretenses.
It's also clear that the promises in Trump's fundraising solicitations that 90% was going to his campaign and only 10% to the leadership PAC paying his legal fees were false.
