SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — With a primary election that may have actual stakes, KELOLAND News analyzed how much the candidates are fundraising and spending in South Dakota.
So far, only Sen. Amy Klobuchar has visited the Mount Rushmore state in the 2020 cycle. She dropped out of the race on Monday.
While it’s hard to grasp the exact amount of spending by each candidate, Facebook Ads give us some insight.
Federal Election Commission campaign finance data shows of the Democrats currently running, Sen. Bernie Sanders has raised the most at nearly $40,000. Klobuchar had raised about $4,000 more. Compare that to President Donald Trump who has raised nearly $163,000 from South Dakotans.
