From the Wall Street Journal:
Donald Trump raised $3.1 million in the month after he became the Republican Party’s presumptive nominee, giving him a staggering cash disadvantage heading into the general election against Hillary Clinton.
Mrs. Clinton, meanwhile, raised $27 million last month even as she sought to fend off the final weeks of primary rival Bernie Sanders’s presidential campaign. She has raised $240 million over the course of the cycle, to Mr. Trump’s $17 million. (He has also loaned himself $45.7 million through May.)
Running for office ain’t cheap;
the price is amazingly steep.
There’s only Bill Gates
could pay the full rates;
the rest of ’em steal what they reap.
