Democratic PAC Accuses Trump of Breaking Campaign Law by Not Formally Announcing 2024 Run

Democratic super PAC American Bridge accused Trump of breaking campaign finance laws on Monday because he hasn’t yet formally announced whether he will run in 2024. 

The group told the New York Times that it is filing a formal complaint with the Federal Election Commission and using Trump’s own words in the complaint, The Hill reports

“He should have to adhere to the law in a way that all other candidates do,” Jessica Floyd, the group’s president, said. “When he says, ‘I’m going to do it a third time,’ that’s not flirting. That’s more than a toe dip.” 

American Bridge specifically cited a quote by Trump last year in which he said, “I know what I’m going to do, but we’re not supposed to be talking about it yet from the standpoint of campaign finance laws.” 

Trump’s team responded to the complaint, saying it has “zero merit.” 

“America is spiraling into disaster because of the Democrats’ failures, and instead of reversing course, they are busy filing frivolous complaints that have zero merit,” Trump spokesman Taylor Budowich said. 

According to federal finance rules, anyone who raises or spends over $5,000 in an effort to support a presidential campaign must file with the Federal Election Commission.”
