President Trump taps longtime supporter Steve Wynn, billionaire casino mogul, to serve as RNC Finance Chair in which he expects the Republican Party to begin building a massive warchest ahead of the 2020 reelection campaign.
Here’s more from Lifezette:
The Republican National Committee is poised to name President Donald Trump’s former rival as the next finance chair for the party.
Billionaire casino mogul Steve Wynn was selected to lead the GOP fundraising operation into the 2018 midterm election at a meeting of RNC officials over the weekend, sources with knowledge of the meeting told LifeZette.
Wynn’s selection to lead the RNC’s finance operation is another testament to the new president’s ability to put old grudges to rest.
Identifying priority 2018 midterm contests and discussing candidate recruitment were also on the agenda for the meeting of party officials, according to the sources.
Wynn is a loyal Trump partisan and friend, booting designer Tom Ford’s products from his casinos after Ford made disrespectful comments about first lady Melania Trump.
The casino mogul served as finance vice chairman of Trump’s inaugural committee. The committee, which also included casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, raised more than $90 million.
