Casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and his wife, Miriam, finally gave $10 million in September to mega-donor Todd Rickettss pro-Trump super PAC Future45, according to the latest filings with the Federal Election Commission. The group raised another $2.3 million from Todd Ricketts billionaire father, TD Ameritrade founder Joe Ricketts, and energy executives Joe Craft and Jay Bergman.
According to a Politico analysis, only $68.7 million out of the $212 million Trump collected over the past three months in joint ventures with the RNC and state parties ended up in his campaign coffers, with $63.5 going to overhead expenses: consultants, catering, space rentals, list rentals, direct mail and online ads. Another $9.3 million is earmarked for special RNC accounts for convention expenses. The rest was split with the RNC and state parties. According to the FEC filings, the Hillary Clinton campaign spent only 22 cents on overhead for every dollar raised, compared with Trumps 30.
Back in September, The Guardian reported that Adelson was planning to donate as much as $25 million to Future45. Later that figure was reduced to a mere $5 million, and now, apparently, they settled on $10 million.
Last week, Trump mentioned Adelson at a rally in Nevada, when he referred to the Las Vegas Review Journal, the largest newspaper in Nevada, which Adelson purchased through a proxy last year. Good paper, owned by a great guy Sheldon, Sheldon, Sheldon Adelson, Trump said, adding that Adelson is a big supporter of Israel.
Statements from both presidential campaigns made on Saturday showed Clinton leading with $154 million raised in September and $150 million cash on hand, to Trumps $100 million raised and $75 million in the hand.
I would imagine a good chunk of Trumps expenditures are the “space rentals” and security for such
He rent’s 2-3 large arenas a day, while Hillary spends nothing since she can’t fill even the banquet room of the local Waffle House
Here in TN we saw two good Trump ads last night during “Law And Order” re-runs. Especially effective was Ivanka speaking about child care deductions, obviously targeting working women.
Looks like they’re starting to spend the money these three weeks before the election.
if all this money is already appropriated, where’s the money for commercials gonna come from?
That witch has 300 million to our 175 million.
And the msm free advertising.
I’m gonna donate another 25 to Trump
Now let’s see if the Cubs can reward the Ricketts family with a curse breaking World Series win. This Yankee and Met fan say GO CUBS GO!!
For what it’s worth I’ve given $35 a month to him for the past few months.
I’ve seen a few good pro-Trump commercials done by Future45 here over the past few weeks.
That’s a LOT.
I dont know about you, but I’m no millionaire.
I donate to FR, the Vets, and for the next month Trump.
I’ll be gad when Trump donation is finished. HOPE IT WAS WORTH IT!!
HE NEEDS TO WIN.
What is the big deal, Wal-Mart’s Idiot gave the Witch $20 Mil.
better late than never, thank you Adelson family!
