“New pro-Trump political group readies for launch”


But day-to-day operational control of the group, which will be organized as a 501(c)4 nonprofit, is expected to lie with Parscale, who was given authority to take charge by Jared Kushner, Trump’s influential son-in-law. Inside Trump’s orbit, there has been a tug-of-war for weeks over who would control this outside entity — and with it the potential to tap into millions of dollars from both small and large donors….

The group is modeled after the nonprofit that backers of President Obama created after the 2008 campaign, a concept that was pushed heavily by Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s former campaign manager who is joining the White House as counselor to the president. Conway had initially been expected to take an official role at the outside group; her decision to forgo that position was one of the matters that top Trump officials aimed to address this week.
