Hillary Clinton’s losing campaign cost a record $1.2B

hillary_wacko
Via NY Post: Hillary Clinton and her supporters spent a record $1.2 billion for her losing presidential campaign — twice as much as the winner, Donald Trump, according to the latest records. The president-elect, who confounded critics during the campaign by saying there was no need to raise or spend $1 billion or more, ended up making do with $600 million.
Clinton’s expensive machine tore through $131.8 million in just the final weeks, finishing with about $839,000 on hand as of Nov. 28. Team Trump spent $94.5 million in the home stretch — from Oct. 20 to Nov. 28 — and had $7.6 million left.
The figures include all spending by the campaigns, PACs and party committees.
Trump contributed $66 million from his own pocket, $34 million less than he estimated he would shell out.
Brad Parscale, Trump’s digital director, credited strategic last-minute investments with helping propel the political newcomer to victory. The campaign and the Republican Party spent about $5 million in get-out-the-vote digital advertising targeted in the final few days at Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Florida.
It proved critical: Some of those states were won by razor-thin margins. “You think, what if we hadn’t spent that?” Parscale said. “We might not have won.”
Last June, Trump shrugged off skeptics who said he needed to spend $1 billion to have a chance to win. “There’s no reason to raise that,” Trump said. “I just don’t think I need nearly as much money as other people need because I get so much publicity. I get so many invitations to be on television. I get so many interviews, if I want them.”

Spending about double of what was required is pretty good by Establishment standards. It was only necessary to spend that much for two reasons as I see it: To carpet bomb the numbskull undecideds with lies about Trump, and to grease up all the media cronies. Grease em good. Trump probably would have done it for way less than he did except, as he frequently remarked, there was just a tsunami of propaganda everywhere you looked. The Left is still doing it, and the scumbag media are twisting the news or simply not reporting it. That’s the fake news, not… Read more »

JFK said in 1962/3, that elections should be paid for by the government, with candidates getting ten million or something, thereby putting an end to lobbying, instead he was murdered, a war commenced, nuclear threat went ballistic, while the cost of getting elected hit the stratosphere, what the difference one life would have made, what a crazy world!

Virginia’s eRIC cANTOR, a repukelican, lost his ass to a guy hardly anybody knew, for a tenth or less than cantor spent. Locally, a first time FEMALE (put that in your pipe and smoke it liberals) conservative CANDIDATE trounced an establishment shoe in on, guess what? A shoestring. Mr Trump got way more airtime in general than the also-rans for WAY less investment. Seems to me if you can produce your product cheaper than the other guy it gives you a distinct advantage in the marketplace. So far. So good.

Look at the picture of Steve Novick, who just lost his election to a newcomer; Steve had previously promised that he would not bring this idea to a vote until after the New Year when the new members of the council, and the new major were seated. (I guess Steve just cannot tell the truth.) We have seen where failing companies bring in a big gun, and all of a sudden things turn around and the company flourishes and once again is financially viable. Some people who manage things are far more talented that others. From this you are probably… Read more »

I can only imagine he’ll run this country like a marine recruit’s bed-corners – tight n crisp. About damned time we had a businessman in office!
