Virginia Republican Corey A. Stewart, who lost his senate bid to Tim Kaine (D-Va.) in 2018, will head a conservative super PAC that aims to raise money for President Trump's reelection campaign, the Washington Post reports.

Details: The Keeping America Great PAC will also raise money for state and federal candidates who support Trump as the 2020 election looms closer. The PAC raised $130,000 last year, which was used to fund attack ads against Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-Va.).
