Running Out of Campaign Funds Right Before the Finish Line

Running Out of Campaign Funds Right Before the Finish Line

How Trump's Billion Dollar Campaign Lost Its Cash Advantage - New York Times

Five months later, Mr. Trump’s financial supremacy has evaporated. Of the $1.1 billon his campaign and the party raised from the beginning of 2019 through July, more than $800 million has already been spent. Now some people inside the campaign are forecasting what was once unthinkable: a cash crunch with less than 60 days until the election, according to Republican officials briefed on the matter.

This article is an interesting look at how campaign funds can be spent, and of course I relish the idea of the campaign running out of money before the end of the race, but I would suspect this article is also exactly the sort of thing that will drive money into the campaign.
