(CNN) A super PAC initially linked to Ted Cruz transformed itself Wednesday into a new big-money group backing Donald Trump, the latest twist in the confusing orbit of pro-Trump super PACs.

The new group, Make America Number I, was until Wednesday known as Keep the Promise I, a group funded almost entirely by $13.5 million from Republican megadonor Robert Mercer. The super PAC will now focus primarily on advertising opposing HIllary Clinton as opposed to supporting Trump, according to spokeswoman Kristina Hernandez, a decision made to give Trump-skeptical donors more comfort in contributing.

Make America Number I is at least the fifth pro-Trump super PAC jockeying to support the Republican nominee. The group will be run by David Bossie, the president of Citizens United and a longtime player in conservative money circles, Hernandez said, giving the organization some credibility as it competes with other groups for checks.
