#NeverTrump Spent $75 Million on 64,000 Negative Ads


Anti-Trump groups and campaigns spent $75.7 million on 64,000 negative ads against Donald Trump this election cycle. And that’s just broadcast television. Millions more were spent on cable and satellite television ads, GATEWAY PUNDIT reports.

The Never-Trumpers even ran Donald Trump KKK ads – a new low in intraparty fighting.

CNN reported: The television ad campaign to defeat Donald Trump was at least a $75.7 million effort, according to the ad tracking firm Kantar Media/CMAG. (Their full estimate: $75,723,580) It comprised nearly 64,000 ad spots throughout the campaign. And that’s the figure for broadcast television alone. Anti-Trump ads also ran on cable and satellite television, but the tracking data does not capture that.

A pro-Marco Rubio group spent the most against Trump. Conservative Solutions PAC spent more than one out of every four dollars against Trump — about $19.7 million.

One of their spots — “Serious” — was the most-run anti-Trump ad. It ran 3,939 times.

The pro-Jeb Bush super PAC Right to Rise USA spent nearly $10 million, the second-most of any group.
