Mitch McConnell’s PAC Pulls Support From Blake Masters Amid Trump Feud

Mitch McConnell’s PAC is pulling $8 million from the tight race in Arizona, leaving Trump-endorsed Blake Masters to face Mark Kelly alone

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s PAC has pulled millions of its ad dollars out of Arizona, leaving Blake Masters to fend for himself ahead of the November election.

The Senate Leadership Fund, McConnell’s powerful PAC, will pull $8 million out of Arizona, underscoring the anti-establishment nature of Trump-endorsed Masters’s insurgent campaign against Democrat incumbent U.S. Sen. Mark Kelly.

The news, broken by Politico, comes amid an ongoing feud between McConnell and 45th President Donald Trump, who heavily supported Masters during the primary. Polls currently show Masters behind Kelly, and the incumbent Democrat has raised $40 million compared to Masters’ $18 million.

Kelly has benefited from the Democratic machine in Arizona while serving the remainder of John McCain’s term in office, and is made more popular by his previous career as an astronaut, though his complete adherence to Joe Biden’s agenda combined with an energized electorate has some pundits convinced the Masters campaign will still be victorious.

The powerful Senate Republican’s PAC, The Senate Leadership Fund, “is one way McConnell has been able to maintain his position as GOP Senate leader for so long,” reported PJ Media. “His PAC has handed out tens of millions of dollars to Republican candidates, which is a lot of incentive to support him,” the outlet explained.

While Trump and many of his Republican supporters seem to be cautiously optimistic about retaking Congress this November, McConnell has repeatedly warned that Republicans may only see modest victories in the House and the Senate remain in Democrat control.

Trump has feuded with McConnell since leaving the White House in 2021, and recently called for Senate Republicans to replace the 80-year-old statesman.

“The Democrats have Mitch McConnell and his lovely wife, Elaine ‘Coco’ Chao, over a barrel,” Trump declared in a Truth Social post. “He and she will never be prosecuted, as per the last paragraphs of this story, as long as he continues to give the Radical Left the Trillions and Trillions of Dollars that they constantly DEMAND.”

“A new Republican leader in the Senate must be picked immediately,” Trump declared.

McConnell’s wife, Chinese shipping heiress Elaine Chao, reportedly interviewed with the January 6 committee earlier this month.

    At A time when the Republicans should be together to change this destructive climate in Washington, McConnell and Trump are destroying the Republican party. This could result in another two years for the Democrats to bring about socialism. Thank God, at 88, I am too old to see it happen. Thanks McConnell. I hopoe your state remembers what you have done.

      Trump isn’t the one destroying the Republican party, Mitch is. Trump endorses strong Conservative America first candidates and when they win MITCH pulls their funds. That’s on Mitch not Trump.

        Mcconnel has been a traitor to conservatives since he was elected. Now he is willing to help the Dems destroy our country so he can show how powerful he is. He would destroy families, our freedoms, our families and sovreignty to hand us over to the communists.

      You mean help Trump try to steal the election? I’m pretty sure McConnell, having a lot more character than Trump, didn’t try to help him steal the election.
      In fact, I’m also pretty sure that, like all Republican pols, Cocaine Mitch knows that Trump is a lunatic who is destroying the party and would love to see him gone.

    This is the reason McConnell is the least popular politician in America. He’s universally hated for very good reason. He would rather remain in the minority (where his votes can be sold for more) than have to lead. Gun control, money for Ukraine, amnesty for children of illegals–Mitch’s list goes on and on. WTF is wrong with the people of Kentucky?

    Tom, I’ve seen a few of your articles lately linked by TLD and you seem to be a good journalist but this doesn’t cut it. You say this like it’s some kind of fact. Most idiots believe polls are accurate and that’s why they assume it’s true. They aren’t.

    “Polls currently show Masters behind Kelly…”

    Which polls? I live here in Arizona and there’s no way Kelly is ahead of Masters. They said the same thing about Karrin Robson being ahead of Kari Lake and look what happened.

    Based on the disastrous policies of the DemocRATs, the mass exodus of conservatives (like myself) from California to Arizona is going to turn the state even deeper red this November. People are sick of the “open borders” policy just to name a few things. Even most Hispanics I talk to.

    I would like to see Trump create his own PAC and have it donate $8 million to Blake’s campaign–the exact amount of money he’s losing due to McConnell’s China strategy. Even better, DOUBLE it–and tell the world about McConnell’s Leftist choice and it’s consequences. McConnell’s up for reelection in 2026, so Trump needs to make it his own personal goal to replace him–ideally, impeach and remove him for his treasonous acts against the country BEFORE 2026. I’m sure an investigation into McConnell’s ties to China would get him removed if the GOP really tried.

    McConnell needs to have his statements about candidate quality i.e. MAGA versus RINO self fulfilled. What better way than to starve the MAGA candidate for funds and upon losing blame Trump. The guy is a real piece of work. Too those fools that think Trump is part of this problem, who pulled the money from whom? Get real.

    There is no doubt in my mind that the Communist Democrats have used ” The extensive and sophisticated voter fraud organization” that our current usurper president boasted of them having to keep Rino’s like Mc Connell in office.
    How is it allowed for a sitting Senator to do business with the Communist Chinese government when he is in the position where he has to vote on bills and laws concerning them and our national security?
    Why is Fartswell still in office instead of sitting in a prison cell, when it is a fact that he had a sexual affair with a known Chinese spy?

    Rush pointed out years ago that McConnell and the lead dem Senator (Reid, Schumer, whoever was in power) made backdoor deals that would ensure each other’s spot as leader, minority or majority. And, they of course do it with taxpayers’ money. They each get hundreds of millions of dollars to dispurse in elections as they see fit. A new Senator is guaranteed to get re-elected, or not, according to just how ‘loyal’ they are to McConnell / Schumer. This is how McConnell has remained in power for so long. McConnell did some really good work with Federal judges, and keeping that G-d awful Garland off the Supreme Court. But he has ‘other people’s money’ to run his fiefdom, and beware the person that gets in his way, does not tow the McConnell line.

    And yet another example of why they all cannot stand President Trump. No one can control him since he could, if he desired, fund all of his own campaign. That said, President Trump does raise campaign funds for himself and others. During his first campaign run he was able to use the Drive-By media due to their hatred of Trump. They initially followed him around everywhere, and he did not have to pay them. They eventually figured out just how much they were actually assisting him, but for quite some time it was so much fun to watch Trump point out their cameras, and tell the truth right to their faces / cameras. I thoroughly enjoyed when Trump would point out the cameras at the back of a large stadium, and describe them as they truly are, liars, fake, propagandists, etc.

    Masters did pull an Oz-like maneuver himself. Prior to the primary, he was “100% pro-life”. After the primary, there was a rewrite and now he opposes “partial-birth” abortion -already illegal- & abortion at term(currently estimated as about 1% of abortions). Not exactly the same position. After primary wins Oz scrubbed “Trump”, and Masters scrubbed “100% pro-life.” I would no longer support either guy (although Oz’s opponent “give’em the key to the front door” Fetterman makes that a tough decision.)

    The Republicans in the House and Senate, need to demote McConnell and McCarthy from leadership positions. As long as they are the leaders, the Republicans will continue to fritter away any chances for meaningful changes. Hopefully, the Republicans have grown a backbone.
