This figure does not include ads that appeared on cable and satellite channels as those are not part of the tracking data.

Conservative Solutions PAC, a pro Marco Rubio group, spent over one of every four dollars for an anti-Tump ad—about $19.7 million. One of their ads, “Serious,” ran 3,939 times, the most of any anti-Trump ad. His campaign even ran ads in Missouri attempting to link Trump to the KKK.

The second most anti-Trump ad that ran, “Day One,” was sponsored by a Sen. Ted Cruz group that criticized Trump and other candidates.

In second place for the most anti-Trump dollars spent came from Jeb Bush’s super PAC, Right to Rise USA, which spent nearly $10 million.

Shelling out the most of any presidential candidate on either side of the aisle, Hillary Clinton’s campaign spent $5.2 million on ads with an anti-Trump message.

But Cruz’s campaign spent $4.3 million against Trump, more than any other Republican.

Meanwhile, on the Democrat side, Bernie Sanders defeated Hillary Clinton in Indiana, the same state that gave Trump a resounding defeat over Ted Cruz, and all but sealed the Republican primary for Trump.

As MHProNews has reported, Democrats want to keep, and possibly expand, the reach of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, while Republicans say they want to do away with the agency. ##
