The renegade Republican group The Lincoln Project raised nearly $40 million in the third quarter for its hard-hitting campaign to oust President Trump and the Republican Senate majority.
The Lincoln Project was founded by “Never Trump” Republicans with decades of experience as GOP consultants. The super PAC is spending millions of dollars to air advertising and videos that attack the president and Senate Republicans up for reelection, sometimes in sharply personal terms.
