Joe Biden’s campaign has a total of $466 million to spend on advertising and other campaign needs, which is $141 million more than President Trump’s campaign.
The Trump campaign has a total of $325 million in its war chest, spokesman Tim Murtaugh said.
Meanwhile, Biden ended August with nearly $181 million on hand compared to Trump’s $121 million.
Biden is also spending more than Trump. In August, Biden outspent Trump $130 million to $61 million. The television and video streaming industry felt the shift when the Trump campaign went dark in several key states, Politico reported.
Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien defended his more reserved approach and said he’s carefully trying to manage the campaign budget.
In August, the Trump campaign significantly reduced its video advertising and even went silent in key swing states like Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio and Minnesota. Biden ended up outspending Trump 3-to-1 on video ads
