Kanye West has spent $6.8m on his Presidential campaign so far-Report

 

Billionaire rapper, Kanye West has spent a whooping $6.8 million on his United States Presidential campaign so far.

According to reports, this is despite failing to file paperwork in time to get his name included on the ballots in several states.

West, 43, whose political party is called The Birthday Party, has only made the ballot in 10 states, including Colorado, Iowa, and Minnesota, according to CNN.

The music star filed his campaign finance report to the Federal Election Commission on Friday, which reported bringing in a total of $6.8 million between July 15 and Aug. 31.

His campaign raised $11,472 in contributions from eight donors that gave between $200 and $1,000 and smaller donors who gave under $200 during that time, the report indicated.

It also showed that the campaign  spent a total of $5.9 million during the period. $2.7 million was paid to Millennial Strategies, based in Long Island, N.Y., and Atlas Strategy Group for “ballot access services, polling, campaign management consulting, legal services, and election law research, according to the filing.”

West campaign also spent $1.5 million on Fortified Consulting based in Tempe, Ariz. Politico reported that Fortified Consulting shares an address with Lincoln Strategy Group, which did work in 2016 for President Trump’s campaign as well as the campaign of Carly Fiorina.

The firm is owed an additional $1.2 million from the campaign, which isn’t included in the total spending.

The campaign spent a total of about $404,000 on legal fees, paying a wide range of firms, and spent $95,000 on private jet services.
