How they're spending the money: Big differences between Trump and Biden campaigns

by Mike Andrew - SGN Staff Writer

Both Donald Trump and challenger Joe Biden have raised huge amounts of campaign cash, but they've spent the money in very different - and characteristic - ways.

According to NPR, Biden had raised a total of $1.35 billion against Trump's $1.49 billion. Biden has a decided edge in recent fundraising, however, posting $358 million for the month of September, against Trump's $153 million.

According to the Associated Press (AP), the Trump campaign blew much of his campaign money on a "lifestyles of the rich and famous" setup.

"Aides made flashy displays of their newfound wealth - including a fleet of luxury vehicles purchased by Brad Parscale, his former campaign manager," the AP noted.

With only two weeks to go before the election, some Trump aides told the AP that they are facing tough spending decisions at a time when Democratic nominee Joe Biden has flooded the airwaves with advertising.

That means Trump must do more of his signature mass rallies as a substitute while relying on an unproven theory that he can turn out infrequent voters at historic levels.

Meanwhile, Trump bought a $10 million Super Bowl ad even before the Democrats had formally nominated his challenger.

The AP says Trump also "tapped his political organization to cover exorbitant legal fees related to his impeachment."

The Biden campaign is also paying for lawyers, not to defend their candidate but in expectation of legal challenges as Trump struggles to remain in office.

According to the Daily Beast, the Biden campaign is continuing its round of highly successful fundraisers - not for campaign ads but in expectation that it will have to lawyer up if Trump loses the election but refuses to accept the results.

"The [Biden] campaign is still leaning hard on its donor network, explicitly pointing ahead to its potential need to fund legal battles in multiple states following the election," the Daily Beast notes.

"The Biden campaign has assembled the biggest voter protection program in history to ensure the election runs smoothly and to combat any attempt by Donald Trump to create fear and confusion with our voting system, or interfere in the democratic process," Biden campaign spokesperson Michael Gwin told the Daily Beast.

"We're confident that we'll have free and fair elections this November, and that voters will decisively reject Donald Trump's erratic, divisive, and failed leadership at the ballot box."
