2016 Money Race

Wednesday was the deadline for the 2016 Presidential Candidates to file their fundraising reports. Here is what the money race looks like so far:

  1. Jeb Bush ran away with the money last quarter: 11.4 Million dollars in the official campaign committee, and another 103 million in affiliated super-pacs, most notably Right to Rise PAC, for a total of 114.4 Million.
  2. On the democratic side, Hillary Clinton raised a record setting 46.7 million for her official campaign committee, and 15.6 million for Priorities USA, for a grand total of 62.3 million
  3. Ted Cruz raised an impressive total of 52.2 Million, with 20% of that in the official committee.
  4. Marco Rubio pulled in 9.9 million for his campaign, with 31.8 million in super pacs.
  5. Rick Perry raised a meager 1.1 million for his official campaign, but raked in 16.8 million in Super Pac money, for a grand total of 17.9 million
  6. Bernie Sanders has proved to be a fundraising power house in his own right, raising 15.2 million for the campaign, and refusing to take any super pac money.
  7. Bobby Jindal’s super pac carried his campaign; his committee raised just over 500,000 dollars but the super pac brought him to a total of 9.3 million
