The other campaigns have had to spend millions to even try to keep up with Donald Trump. His spend at this point is unheard of in political circles.
If I were running against him, I would be terrified. Can you imagine competing with a candidate that on name recognition alone has already done so well?
[pullquote align=”full” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]MSNBC reported Tuesday morning that aides to Donald Trump estimate that the real estate mogul has spent roughly $2 million on his 2016 presidential campaign to date. That’s consistent with a Wall Street Journal report from over the summer that Trump had loaned his campaign $1.8 million and raised another $100,000 for the effort.[/pullquote]
Meanwhile other candidates have spent far more and they have barely budged the needle. The media and the other candidates are taking notice.
[pullquote align=”full” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]The fact that Trump felt the need to spend only $2 million to date will reinforce the idea, rampant among the frustrated Republican establishment, that the media is Trump’s best friend and is largely responsible for his rise.

You mean the very same media that loves to attack him? That media? Yeah right!
