Pro-Trump Super PAC Struggles To Find Savvy Warrior For Top Spot

WASHINGTON – America First Action, the primary pro-Trump Super PAC that bankrolled more than $30 million in 2018 contests, has been struggling to fill its top post, according to Politico.

An article published Thursday describes the vacancy as devastating to the group’s fundraising goals, which are reported to be targeting $400 million. Finding that big donor-connected leader with maximum star power will be critical if the group is to secure the substantial war chest necessary to combat 2020’smassive candidate field and promote the president’s current agenda, which continues to face opposition not only from the left, but from party establishmenton the right.

Previously, America First had been chaired by Tom Hicks Jr., close friend of Donald Trump Jr. and son of billionaire businessman and 2016 Trump supporter, Tom Hicks. Hicks Jr. was named co-chair of the Republican National Committee (RNC) in 2019, a move some viewed as a strategic rebalancing of Trump loyalist power within the party. Since Hick Jr.’s arrival, the committee has already changed rules governing 2020 RNC Convention to ensure only President Donald Trump-supporting delegates are chosen from each state.

Possible candidates floated have included the recently beleaguered Patriots’ owner Robert Kraft, the recent United Nations ambassador nominee Kelly Craft, pharmaceutical heir and New York Jets owner Woody Johnson, and finally Nick Ayers, according to Politico. Ayers, a former White House official, is currently considered the frontrunner.
