    Jeb Bush - 114 million vs. Hillary Clinton - 69 million, so far

    Jeb Bush team has raised $114 million for presidential run | Miami Herald Miami Herald

    Just how vast a financial advantage Jeb Bush has so far over his 2016 presidential rivals started to become clear Thursday, when Bush’s team reported its fund-raising totals as of the end of June.

    Bush’s campaign, which wasn’t official until last month, collected $11.4 million, a significant number in and of itself. But it was a pro-Bush political action committee that made the big headlines: The Right to Rise USA Super PAC amassed $103 million since January, bringing the total dollars raised on Bush’s behalf to more than $114 million.

    “We are grateful for the overwhelming response from the thousands of donors who have been drawn to Jeb’s optimistic message of conservative renewal and reform,” Charlie Spies, Right to Rise’s treasurer and general counsel, said in a statement.
    Bush is in a far stronger financial position than any other Republican or Democratic contender. Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, who kicked off her candidacy two months before Bush, and her allies have raised about $69 million. Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and four Super PACs have raised more than $51 million since March.
    oops.

    Adelson and the Kochs are spending hundreds of millions to get their puppets elected. You should be proud as a loyal minion.

    Its not different.

    He is just grumpy that the lefts puppets are abandoning them while the rights puppets are more loyal.

    I suppose that would upset me to.

    Neither Adelson or the Kochs are donating to Bush, they prefer others.

    Democrats like to spend other people's money... It's hard to get them to come off their own money.
