$1,590,423: The pittance, by presidential candidate standards, that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s campaign raised in January. That’s about one-fifth what fellow Republican White House hopeful Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas raised for the month.
$1,078,875: Debt owed by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's defunct presidential campaign, as of Jan. 31. More than 40 creditors are awaiting payment from Walker's technically-still-active committee, including Google Inc., Koch brothers-backed data firm i360 and telemarketing operation FLS Connect LLC. Walker, who suspended his presidential bid in September, has taken to selling "sturdy and attractive" coffee mugs to clear his campaign's financial obligations. Several dozen people made debt-slashing contributions of more than $200 in January, including various members of the DeVos family — storied GOP megadonors whose patriarch, Richard, co-founded Amway and owns the Orlando Magic.
$424,955: What Republican Rick Santorum's presidential campaign collectively owed vendors on the eve of the Iowa caucuses. These consultants, fundraisers and data workers in part have themselves to blame, though: Santorum's 2012 presidential campaign remains more than $450,000 in debt.
$372,809: Amount of money pro-Bush super PAC Right to Rise USA raised in January. It proved to be a disastrous development for the group, which raised more than $117 million last year but could do little more than burn through its once-prodigious reserve as Bush’s campaign flailed — and, on Saturday night, ended.
$250,000: That’s how much the pro-Cruz super PAC Stand for Truth collected in January from a California-based limited liability company called Children of Israel LLC. Formed in June 2015, Children of Israel LLC donated $150,000 last year to Pursuing America’s Greatness, the super PAC that supported Republican Mike Huckabee’s failed presidential bid. Reached by the Center for Public Integrity, Shaofen “Lisa” Gao, a real estate agent who is listed on state records as the LLC’s registered agent, declined to discuss the company or its political contributions. “I don’t want to make any comment,” she said.
