Dash for Cash: Clinton Has Five Times More Money Than Sanders Heading to Final Primaries

Screen Shot 2016-05-21 at 1.08.25 PMAt the beginning of this month, Bernie Sanders‘ campaign had less than $6 million left after all those $27 donations. In comparison, Sanders’ rival for the Democratic nomination, Hillary Clinton, is sitting on $30 million.

Worse yet, look what the AP is saying about how fast that $6 million could go:

The two were on roughly equal fundraising footing last month, with Clinton and Sanders each raising more than $25 million. But the Vermont senator spent almost $39 million to Clinton’s $24 million, the reports showed.

This year, Sanders has averaged more than $40 million in spending per month, underlining how quickly he could blow through the cash he had on hand at the beginning of May.
Where he is spending $40 million per month, Clinton is spending $26 million, which gives credence to that insistence the campaign has had that it is “really, really cheap.”

Sanders has cut his payroll dramatically in an effort to stay financially afloat as he makes his way toward the final primary on June 14, but the Democratic National Committee — which has benefitted from Clinton’s fundraising, too — is already looking beyond that last primary in D.C. They are now focusing on states that they believe will be a battleground during the general election.
