Price tag on the April 26th Primaries? More Than $16 Million.

The road to election day has taken us to five states that had the potential to swing a great deal of momentum for a few candidates. Overall, John Kasich was the largest beneficiary of super PAC spending in support of his candidacy ($773,319) while Donald Trump didn’t see super PACs spend a single red penny supporting his effort.

Meanwhile, super PACs spent $1,193,617 opposing Trump’s candidacy and no money opposing Sanders or Kasich.

Of the states holding primaries last night, Connecticut led the pack with more than $7 million spent overall while Delaware trailed badly with just shy of $76K spent. 💸
