MASON CITY, Iowa — Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., attacked Donald Trump on Monday by criticizing the former president for not supporting a federal abortion ban and repeatedly expressing an interest in working with “both sides” to reach an agreement on the issue. “And both sides are going to come together and both sides — both sides, and this is a big statement — both sides will come together, "he added. Scott has made his support for a 15-week federal abortion ban a cornerstone of his campaign, using it to contrast himself with Trump and his other 2024 rivals. Ramaswamy has said abortion should be left to the states, while Haley has stated a 15-week ban would never pass Congress. Charlie Neibergall / APWhen asked whether he’d sign a 15-week federal abortion ban during a radio interview Monday, Florida Gov.

NEW YORK — While visiting the Sept. 11. memorial Monday in Lower Manhattan, Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy said he stands by the comments he had made regarding the terrorist attacks in a recent interview. “So today’s not the day to talk about the comments I made, which I stand by. “Maybe the answer is zero. Monday night Ramaswamy was asked how he came to those thoughts and answered, “It’s not a thought I came to — it’s a hard fact. Honored to be with the bravest & finest among us at the 9/11 Memorial tonight.”

The criticism comes as Ramaswamy is slated to visit Ground Zero Monday for the tragedy’s 22nd anniversary. “It spits in the face of the thousands of lives that we lost on that day and subsequently,” Hurd said of Ramaswamy’s comments at a campaign stop here. Ramaswamy insists his comments about 9/11 revolve around the FBI’s changing story on Omar Al-Bouyimi. Twenty years after one of the most horrific days in American history, declassified FBI documents revealed Omar Al-Bayoumi, a Saudi national, aided two of the terrorists behind the attacks. “Declassified documents that came out 20 years later from the FBI said that the 9/11 Commission and the FBI absolutely were untruthful about Mohamed al-Bayoumi,” Ramaswamy said.

According to the Wall Street Journal’s polling, Trump held a 24-point lead over DeSantis back in April, 48% to 24%. Or take CNN’s polling, which had Trump ahead of DeSantis by 21 points nationally back in June, 47% to 26%. Or look at Fox News’ poll, which had DeSantis at 28% back in February, versus 43% for Trump. But Fox’s latest national poll — back in mid-August — had DeSantis at 16% (versus 53% for Trump). Altogether, the pattern is clear: DeSantis’ national polling percentages have gone from the mid- to high-20s earlier this year to the teens now.

The super PAC supporting North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum has been the top 2024 ad spender since last week's first Republican presidential debate, as the group looks to help Burgum gain enough traction to make next month's debate. Best of America PAC has booked and spent $950,000 since Thursday, the day after the GOP debate, according to the ad-tracking firm AdImpact. That's more than any other candidate or group over that span, including the second and third top-spending GOP groups, the super PACs supporting former President Donald Trump and Florida Gov. After tearing his Achilles tendon the day before the first debate, Burgum spoke for just eight minutes on stage, less than every candidate except for former Arkansas Gov.

The mugshot seen around the world has given Donald Trump his largest single-day fundraising paycheck yet, according to his campaign. The campaign also reported that he raised $4.18 million on Friday, marking the single-highest 24-hour period of the campaign to date. Less than two hours after the mugshot was taken, Trump’s online campaign store began selling t-shirts with his instantly viral mugshot emblazoned on the front. His official campaign store is currently selling a series of mugshot-related merchandise items, including mugs, Koozies as well as signed mugshot posters. “Organic money has skyrocketed, especially after President Trump tweeted out the picture along with the website,” Steven Cheung, a spokesperson for Trump's campaign, told NBC News.

NEWTON, Iowa — Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy said he would like Elon Musk to be an adviser in his administration should he be elected. The statement came in response to a town hall question from a voter on Friday, asking the 38-year-old entrepreneur where he would seek guidance if elected. Musk on Aug. 17 reposted an interview on his social media platform, X, between Ramaswamy and Tucker Carlson, calling Ramaswamy “a very promising candidate.”Ramaswamy admires the mass layoffs Musk conducted after taking over Twitter last year. Last month, Ramaswamy participated in a virtual discussion with Musk where the CEO described himself as a moderate voter. Ron DeSantis announced his bid for the White House in a Twitter Space in May, a stunt which crashed the platform due to high traffic.

NBC News’ Shaq Brewster watched the debate with a group of two-time Trump voters in Waukesha, Wis..

News of Trump’s fourth indictment broke late Monday, so most of Trump’s top rivals for the GOP nomination have not yet weighed in on the Georgia charges. “Over a year ago, I said that Donald Trump’s actions disqualified him from ever serving as President again. Those words are more true today than ever before.”Two, businessman Vivek Ramaswamy appeared on a live town hall on NewsNation as the news of Trump’s indictment broke.

NBC News will partner with the Des Moines Register and Mediacom for "The Iowa Poll" in the lead-up to the 2024 presidential caucuses in the state. The partners will work with Selzer & Company pollster J. Ann Selzer to develop questions. “The 2024 presidential election is well under way and it’s critical to capture the thinking of the electorate at every stage of the cycle,” NBC News’ Senior Vice President of Politics, Carrie Budoff Brown, said. “The Iowa Poll has a storied history of setting the stage for the presidential election cycle,” Carol Hunter, executive editor of the Des Moines Register, added. “We are excited to join forces with NBC News and our longtime partners Selzer & Company and Mediacom to bring Iowans and the nation impactful information about the thinking of likely participants ahead of the 2024 Iowa caucuses.”

Donald Trump is airing a television ad in Atlanta, and other TV markets, that attacks the Fulton County district attorney who could soon charge the former president with his fourth criminal indictment. A Trump campaign aide told NBC News the one-minute political ad will air in Atlanta, New York and Washington, D.C., as well as nationally. It also names attorneys who’ve already brought charges against Trump, including Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and special counsel Jack Smith. Garland appointed a special counsel to investigate Trump, and that special counsel, Jack Smith, is the one who is prosecuting Trump. An NBC News Political Unit analysis of Trump fundraising around his first two indictments found those time periods corresponded with a significant uptick in fundraising by Trump's political organization.

Ron DeSantis’ exclusive interview with NBC News’ Dasha Burns covered a wide range of topics, including two issues dogging DeSantis on the campaign trail: abortion and his state’s new Black history standards. And although he’s pledged to be a “pro-life president,” he’s broken with some others in the GOP field and has not embraced a federal ban on abortions. “I think the reality is that that basically means the states are going to have primary control over it,” DeSantis said. Asked if he would veto a national abortion ban, DeSantis said, “We will be a pro-life president, and we will support pro-life policies. DeSantis defended the standards, saying “it’s very clear that they’re showing that this was a grave injustice, and it contradicted the founding principles of our country.”“Those standards were not political at all.

Republican presidential hopefuls have just two weeks left to qualify for the first presidential primary debate, which is set for Aug. 23. Candidates must hit the minimum threshold of 40,000 unique donors and the polling thresholds 48 hours prior to that debate, and also commit to supporting the eventual GOP nominee. So far, seven candidates have appeared to qualify for the debate in Milwaukee: former President Donald Trump, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, businessman Vivek Ramaswamy, former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, North Dakota Gov. Ambassador Nikki Haley as she struggles to break through the GOP presidential primary field.

It’s not clear how much online support DeSantis’ campaign had from this area, because his campaign did not appear in WinRed’s filing. Scott’s top donor ZIP code was Mount Pleasant, a Charleston suburb, while Haley’s was Lexington, a Columbia suburb. Chris Christie’s top online donor ZIP codes were from the Garden State. Some of his other top ZIP codes for online donors included Washington, D.C. and a D.C. suburb in northern Virginia. His top 10 ZIP codes in terms of online donors were all from Long Island, N.Y.

The new campaign by the group working to pass the August measure, called Protect Women Ohio, includes a $4.5 million expenditure on two new 30-second television ads, as well as $1 million on statewide radio and digital ads. The ads continue a strategy by the group to tie the Aug. 8 measure, as well as a November ballot measure that would enshrine abortion rights in the state constitution, to parental rights restrictions. Protect Women Ohio’s ads and statements also argue that the presence of ACLU of Ohio in the pro-amendment coalition is evidence of a push beyond abortion rights. The group has also, so far, committed $25 million for ads to oppose the November ballot measure. If voters pass the threshold measure in August, then the proposed abortion rights amendment in November would need 60% support from voters to pass.

Former President Donald Trump has a week of campaign stops on the calendar as he gears up for another collision with the law — a departure from the lead-up to the first two criminal indictments he faced this year. Trump had no public official campaign stops in the five days before each of his first two indictments, in New York and Florida. On Tuesday, the former president will attend a campaign fundraising event in New Orleans, with tickets going for $23,200 per person/per couple. On Friday, Trump will speak at the Republican Party of Iowa’s 2023 Lincoln Dinner alongside most other 2024 GOP presidential candidates. Trump is also leveraging the specter of an indictment in his fundraising tactics.

CLAREMONT, N.H. — Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy is laying out plans to shut down a number of federal government agencies if elected, starting with the FBI, Department of Education and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Ramaswamy says his plan does not require rebuilding anything, but rather reorganizing. “In many cases, these agencies are redundant relative to functions that are already performed elsewhere in the federal government,” Ramaswamy said in an interview with NBC News. Eliminating federal agencies has become a recurring talking point in Republican primaries for years — most famously when then-Texas Gov. Rick Perry said in a 2011 GOP debate that he would eliminate three agencies but couldn’t remember one of them.

President Biden is headed to Philadelphia Thursday to tout his “Bidenomics” agenda, hoping once again to make early headway with voters over economic issues. And for now, Biden has a chance to tout his economic agenda and successes while his potential Republican presidential challengers are bogged down, either in a battle for second place or by the potential of another looming indictment. Doug Burgum’s campaign announced Wednesday that he had received contributions from more than 40,000 individual donors, meeting one threshold to qualify for the first GOP presidential primary debate. That could be a blow to both Republicans as they take on (or consider running against) primary candidates who have support from GOP leaders. Raking it in: Nevada Republican Sam Brown raised $400,000 in the first week of his Senate campaign, Politico reports.

Chris Christie's presidential campaign will report raising $1.65 million in the second quarter, which included the former New Jersey governor's first 25 days in the 2024 campaign. “In 25 days, the Christie campaign is building a strong foundation with small-dollar donors, industry leaders and familiar faces in the Republican Party,” said adviser Maria Comella. In addition, the super PAC aligned with Christie, Tell It Like It Is PAC, said it raised nearly $5.9 million between the former governor's campaign announcement on June 6 and the close of the second quarter on June 30. The Christie campaign also highlighted a number of notable donors who have given support so far, including several — former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour and Kentucky Republican donors Kelly and Joe Craft — who have also given support to former Vice President Mike Pence.

Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., raised $6.1 million for his presidential campaign in the second quarter, a campaign spokesperson said. It marks Scott's first financial report since jumping into the 2024 presidential race with an exploratory committee in early April. The Scott campaign got off to a quick-spending start because it transferred a sizable sum from his Senate account to fund his presidential bid. The campaign spokesperson said Scott had $21 million cash on hand at the end of June, which is down slightly from the nearly $22 million that Scott had in his Senate account at the end of March. Ron DeSantis' campaign announced raising $20 million as he jumped into the race last quarter.

Former President Donald Trump's 2024 campaign said Wednesday that it has raised $6.6 million since news of his federal indictment broke, including more than $4.5 million online. In an announcement, the campaign said an additional $2.1 million came in at a pre-planned fundraiser Tuesday night at Trump's Bedminster golf course in New Jersey. Altogether, that's a bit more than half of the $12 million Trump's campaign previously announced raising in the six days following the news in late March that he had been indicted in New York City. That indictment alleged that Trump violated New York state law when paying an adult film actress to stay quiet about an alleged affair. Trump's campaign has sent out numerous fundraising emails asking for donations since he revealed that he had been indicted again.

Trump's prior indictment in New York on charges alleging falsification of business documents didn't move the political needle much. But there is recent polling that explains what Americans think about the prospect of Trump being charged with crimes, including some specifically about an indictment related to his handling of classified documents. Meanwhile, 63% of Americans, called "taking highly classified documents from the White House and obstructing efforts to retrieve them" a serious crime. Ahead of Trump's indictment in Manhattan, Quinnipiac University asked Americans whether they thought criminal charges, not an indictment, should disqualify Trump from running. A slim majority of all voters, 52%, said that in his New York indictment, Trump has been treated like anyone else accused of those same crimes and hasn't been unfairly targeted.

DeSantis chided Trump for not yet taking a position on the deal that President Joe Biden and Speaker Kevin McCarthy struck to raise the debt ceiling and impose some spending cuts. Collision course: The two GOP hopefuls from South Carolina, Haley and GOP Sen. Tim Scott, are facing an “inevitable collision” in the early primary state, the Post and Courier reports. No thanks: GOP Rep. Warren Davidson has decided not to run for Senate in Ohio, reports. The Salt Lake Tribune reports that Utah Republican Rep. Chris Stewart plans to announce his resignation from Congress as early as Wednesday, a move that, per the Deseret News, could mean the seat remains vacant until next year.

South Carolina GOP Sen. Tim Scott officially filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission on Friday to launch his campaign for president. The campaign finance filing is standard procedure for candidates for president. Federal campaign finance law states that within 15 days of referring to yourself as a candidate or spending a major amount of money, you must file your official campaign notice with the FEC. That seems to be what Scott was doing here, designating himself a candidate for president and naming his campaign committee "Tim Scott for America." Others expected to jump in besides Scott include Florida Gov.
