A Missouri newspaper is reporting Donald Trump’s 2024 presidential campaign sent cease-and-desist letters to groups fundraising for gubernatorial candidate Bill Eigel.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports his political action committee solicited supporters, asking them to support the former president, but instead, donations went to Eigel’s campaign.
Eigel tells Newstalk KZRG that he cannot comment on outside organizations, but he’s focused on his campaign…
“This was more an attack on me trying to imply the things that you’re mentioning, and I got to tell you, I believe strongly, and I expected this, that I was going to get attacked by certain media outlets, like the Post-Dispatch, because what I’m doing is I am bypassing the traditional Republican establishment donor network.”
Eigel faces off against Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft and Lieutenant Governor Mike Kehoe for the Republican nomination for governor.
