$46,098,694: The amount Trump has contributed to his own campaign, mostly in the form of loans his campaign says Trump won’t collect on. Sure, $46 million-plus is serious scratch for most Americans. But in Trump terms, it’s a pittance — not even 8 percent of the way toward the $600 million that Trump once said he could personally pump into a presidential campaign.
$13,747,372: The amount Right to Rise USA refunded to its donors in May. The super PAC, which backed former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s presidential bid, had raised more than $121 million and spent nearly all of its haul before Bush withdrew from the race in February. The super PAC, which can raise and spent unlimited amounts of money, said it would refund a minimum of 10 percent to donors who gave $1,000 or more to back Bush’s fight for the Republican nomination. At the end of May, Right to Rise USA had a little more than $3 million left in the bank.
$9,235,391: The amount Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders had in the bank entering June, after raising more than $229 million and spending about $220 million since he launched his 2016 bid last year. Sanders appears to have burned through much of his remaining cash competing in the final Democratic presidential primaries. In June, his campaign sponsored about 2,000 TV ads, as he beat out Clinton in Montana and North Dakota but lost delegate-rich contests in other states such as California and New Jersey.
$8,966,466: The amount refunded by pro-Ted Cruz super PAC Keep the Promise II to GOP megadonor and energy investor Toby Neugebauer. Neugebauer last year contributed $10 million to Keep the Promise II, which added financial heft to Cruz’s emerging candidacy. But later, the group drew ire from Cruz supporters for not spending significantly during the primary election cycle. Neugebauer, who has since endorsed Trump, told the Center for Public Integrity in May that he had “not yet focused” on the future of Keep the Promise II. Keep the Promise II has since terminated.
$6,966,000: The total amount owed to BB&T bank by the Republican National Committee, according to its most recent campaign finance filing, which showed it borrowed approximately $2 million of that amount in May. That’s less debt than the $9.9 million the RNC reported carrying in June 2012, but the party also reported a lot less cash on hand — $19.9 million, compared to $60.8 million at the same point four years ago. One possible comfort: The Democratic National Committee owes even more, reporting more than $7.9 million in debt at the end of May to Amalgamated Bank Of New York and a variety of other creditors.
$3 million: The amount conservative billionaire Charles Koch donated to the Freedom Partners Action Fund in May. The super PAC has so far this election cycle only invested in Republicans competing for U.S. Senate seats. The Koch brothers have yet to endorse Trump or contribute to his presidential bid. Since January 2015, Freedom Partners Action Fund has raised nearly $21 million. The Kochs’ extensive political network intends to spend about $250 million influencing elections in 2016.
