New Johnson Fund Allows Donations Up To $850,000

The Hill reports:

Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) announced the creation of a new joint fundraising committee, called Grow the Majority, that will be his principal fundraising apparatus to support Republicans running for House seats. The creation of the organization will allow Johnson and his political apparatus to solicit six-figure donations from high-dollar donors and distribute those funds across the 70 committees that make up the new joint fundraising committee.

A release said that includes committees for 25 House GOP incumbents, 10 nominee funds for key House districts, 16 GOP challengers in Democratic-held districts, 20 state GOP parties in battleground states, the Congressional Leadership Fund, Republican National Committee, and Johnson’s own committee. That means donors can give a maximum contribution of $850,600 to the new Grow the Majority committee.
