He didn't accuse anyone by name, but GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump said some of his opponents are doing something federal election law doesn't allow: raising money for their supporting political action committees.
About a half hour into his Teleprompter-free speech before a crowd of 20,000 at American Airlines Center in Dallas on Monday, Trump praised some of his competitors in the 16-candidate field, but said none of them can make deals like he can.
"We just don't have closers. And honestly, they are not deal people," Trump said. "I'll tell what you they are good at: raising money for PACS. And they're not supposed to do that. It's illegal as hell, but I think they are doing it anyway."
PACs don't have the same limits on raising money as candidates do, but a PAC and a candidate it supports are not allowed to coordinate.
