Kanye West ‘spent whopping $13.2 million’ on his failed Presidential campaign

American rapper, Kanye West reportedly spent a whooping $13.2 million including $12m of his own money on his failed Presidential bid in 2020.

The 43-year-old announced his 2020 United States presidential election campaign through Twitter on July 4, 2020, Independence Day, and on July 16, 2020, the campaign filed a Statement of Candidacy with the Federal Election Commission.

Kanye reportedly received around 57,000 votes across the 12 states in which he was in the running.

According to a new report from People, Kanye West spent an eye-watering amount of money on his failed 2020 presidential attempt.

In a Federal Election Commission report, the rapper contributed $12.5 million of his own money and raised a little over $2 million from outside contributions to fund his Presidential bid.

The reports also notes that he’d raised $14.5m for his campaign and ended it with $1.3m left in the bank.
