Donald Trump spent $600 million as he won the presidency in 2016 during an 18-month campaign.

Hillary Clinton spent $1.2 billion as she lost the presidency in 2016.

In less than three months since Trump nominated Tom Price to head HHS, Jon Ossoff raised (and appears to have spent most if not all of) $8.3 million to get through the first round of a race for one of 435 seats in the House of Representatives.

Ossoff’s spending, if replicated in all House districts for the purposes of comparing his spending to the national spending by Trump and Clinton) would equate to $3.6 billion — six times what Trump spent to win, and three times what Hillary spent to lose.

It still couldn’t buy him a majority of the vote, while he and his supporters are likely to again spend as much or more during the next two months.

  1. On top of that, Jon Ossoff couldn’t even vote for himself.
