This is surprising in it’s candor:
…“President Trump asked me to reach out to remind you just how important YOU are to our movement,” read a Monday email signed by Masters and sent to Trump’s donor list. “We will not win and restore our Republican Majority in the Senate without the support of every single Patriot, and that includes YOU.”
Those who click through a link in that email are sent to a donation page for the “Official Trump Final Countdown Fund,” with the page telling supporters that “your contribution will benefit Save America Joint Fundraising Committee” — Trump’s main fundraising operation — “and Blake Masters for Senate.”
However, the default split for donations made there is 99 percent to Trump’s political operation — and just 1 percent to Masters’ Senate campaign in one of the closest battleground races in the country. (Donors could choose to change the default split, but it requires clicking through a link written in smaller type and jammed between several more eye-grabbing colored boxes.)
The article continues to say that Blake Masters (R – Peter Thiel) can then access Trump’s list of rubes on his own to hit them up again, you know, for his own campaign, so the lucky residents of Possum Hollar can hear from him twice.
