A small group of President Donald Trump's fiercest conservative critics is launching a super PAC designed to fight Trump's reelection and punish congressional Republicans deemed his “enablers."

The organization is known as the Lincoln Project.

It represents a formal step forward for the so-called Never Trump movement, which has been limited largely to media commentary during Trump's presidency.

Organizers launched a website Tuesday. They report fundraising commitments exceeding $1 million to begin.

They hope to raise much more to fuel an advertising campaign in a handful of 2020 battleground states to persuade disaffected Republican voters to break from Trump's GOP.

Trump has the public backing of virtually every Republican member of Congress.
