AND SOME OTHER MONEY TO THINK ABOUT
So far the two Democratic presidential hopefuls have spent $241,445,681 on radio and TV advertising for their campaigns. Hillary Clinton’s campaign dropped $165,554,126, while Sen. Bernard Sanders spent $75,891,555. These big fat numbers originate in a meticulous Ad Age analysis of data from the Kantar Media Campaign Media Analysis Group, which tracks broadcast expenditures.
And from the other side: Republican nominee Donald Trump has spent $21,152,491 on his broadcast outreach. Those who are against him spent more. Five political action committees who are primarily targeting disgruntled Republicans to counter Mr. Trump have spent $28,100,052.
