The Final 5: Whose Got the Money?


A look at the Principal Campaign Committees of the five active presidential candidates shows that Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are bringing in the highest individual campaign contributions, far exceeding that of each of the three GOP contenders.

It may be shocking for Bernie supporters to realize that the man who bases his campaign on corrupt politics and bad billionaires has garnered just $20 million less than Clinton. And to cite $20 million as a deficit is in itself a comment on the wildness of this election.

But what is more mind-boggling is that the GOP, traditionally known for its well-organized campaigns and big money budgets, is failing in this cycle while the Democrats are surging. Of course, all that dark money is absent from these calculations.

Last note in reviewing these summaries: Hillary Clinton’s campaign is managing its money well; it has the largest Cash on Hand of any of the five candidates.

Below is a summary of contributions (Receipts), expenses (Disbursements) and Cash on Hand as reported to the FEC for the principal campaign committees of each candidate.
