The Washington Post has published an analysis of FEC reports on the immense amounts of cash flowing into the Sanders campaign — and flowing right back out.
According to the Washington Post, Bernie’s campaign has spent $91 million on media buys and consulting; and unlike Hillary, they didn’t cap commissions for his consultants — because they didn’t expect his campaign to take off.
In contrast, Hillary’s campaign has spent close to $62 million, 50 percent less.
Even though Bernie has laid off hundreds of his staffers and has virtually no chance of winning the nomination, he is still asking his supporters to donate. He says he’ll keep going until the California primary.
The irony is that despite the mind-boggling amounts of cash spent against her, Hillary is still winning.
There might be some kind of lesson there.
