While Donald Trump was busy wooing supporters Monday evening in Las Vegas, two Republican consultants quietly launched a super political action committee aimed at taking him down.
For weeks, former Republican National Committee staffer Liz Mair and Florida-based consultant Rick Wilson have been crafting a "guerilla campaign" against the GOP candidate, who sits second in the Washington Examiner's presidential power rankings. At around 9 p.m. ET Monday evening, they finally took to Twitter to solicit the help of others.
A website for the newly formed super PAC, which is named Make America Awesome because "America is already great," asks supporters to "help us block and reverse Donald Trump's political ascent" by subscribing to their email list and/or making a donation.
"Our focus is on using unconventional and cost-effective tactics, as opposed to stereotypical high-cost, limited-yield methods with the objective of providing maximum donor value," the website states.
Within minutes of the PAC's debut on Twitter Monday, Mair and Wilson were engaging followers and joking about their target.
